Nancy Lee & Perry R Bass Performance Hall - Fort Worth
Nancy Lee & Perry R Bass Performance Hall - Fort Worth, Texas
This model of one of the two angels was commissioned in 2007 by David M.Schwarz/Architectural Services Inc, the designers of the hall.
The model was commissioned to be given as a Holiday Gift in 2007 and to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the hallís completion in May 2008.
The actual hall is characteristic of the classic European opera house form. An 80-foot diameter Great Dome, artfully painted by Scott and Stuart Gentling, tops the Founders Concert Theater. Two 48-foot tall angels sculpted by Marton Varo from Texas limestone grace the Grand Facade. Since the Hall opened in May 1998, the angels have become preeminent cultural icons of the entire Dallas / Fort Worth metropolitan area.
