Historic Dallas Through Photography
June 6 – 12, St. Matthew’s Cathedral
Stunning photographs of this great city are presented through a partnership with Preservation Dallas, which works to revitalize and preserve historic buildings, regions, and neighborhoods in the city of Dallas. The photos are the result of a class taught by professional photographer Carolyn Brown. A gallery talk will be given at the opening reception by Willis Winters, an architect, photographer, and director of the Dallas Parks and Recreation Department. See your city from a new (or old!) point of view!
