Dallas Cowboy’s Art Tour

by Steven Doyle

If you can’t decide between going to a museum or taking in a Cowboy’s game, fear not — you can do both. There are two tours of the Stadium’s art collection that includes 21 large-scale, site-specific works of art in all, by such artists as Olafur Eliasson, Teresita Fernandez, Doug Aitken, Annette Lawrence, Lawrence Weiner, and Franz Ackermann (pictured above).

The program launched in 2010 with 14 commissioned artworks, installed in prominent locations throughout the stadium. The Dallas Cowboys Art Program was conceived, launched, and funded by Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones and his wife, Gene. Their daughter, Charlotte Anderson, and niece, Melissa Meeks, have also played prominent roles in the project.  Continue reading

Kenny Mills is a bodacious fan of the burger, and does them extremely well at his burger emporium  at 1700 West Park Row in Arlington. There you will find Chop House Burger which is celebrating the Cowboy’s insanely good season with a burger dedicated to the Pro Bowl and their entry into the play-off this coming weekend.

kentby Andrew Chalk

Sunday night the Dallas Cowboys set themselves a target of raising $200,000 for the North Texas Food Bank (NTFB). An important goal, as the NTFB is $600,000 short of their annual target and the fiscal year ends in June. To get to the target, the Cowboys held the Ultimate Cowboys Tailgate Party.

At an event emceed by Dallas Cowboys DeMarcus Ware and Jason Hatcher alongside former players Preston Pearson, Chad Hennings and Daryl Johnston, guests got the chance to bid in a live auction for such things as wine country luxury getaways, chefs tasting meals for 10 at Abacus, lunch with “Christopher Ewing” (Jesse Metcalfe) and a pit pass and suite at three races at North Texas Motor Speedway. Supplementing the live auction was a silent auction with dozens of lots including Cowboys memorabilia, meals at local restaurants, wines and spirits.       Continue reading
