Downtown Dallas plans major arts announcement

DowntownDallas, the nonprofit group that advocates for growth in Dallas' central business district, will make what it is calling a major announcement alongside city leaders on Wednesday about the future management of the Dallas Arts District.

A spokeswoman for DowntownDallas would not elaborate on the exact nature of the announcement, but in a statement the organization said the event is centered around the announcement of new leadership and management of the Dallas Arts District.

The announcement, which will take place at the Meyerson Symphony Center Wednesday afternoon, will include Dallas Mayor Tom Leppert, City Council Member Angela Hunt and John Crawford, president and chief executive officer of DowntownDallas.

Leaders working for major arts district players, including the Dallas Center for the Performing Arts, the Meyerson Symphony Center, the Crow Collection of Asian Art, the Dallas Museum of Art, One Arts Plaza and the Arts District Alliance are scheduled to be in attendance.
