Deco Dream
Walk into the bronze and gold festooned Hall of State at Dallas' Fair Park and you'll feel that you've died and gone to Art Deco-heaven. The centerpiece of the 1936 Texas Centennial Exhibition, the Hall of State was designed by Donald Barthelme and design consultant Paul Cret, and is a masterpiece of modernism. Strolling through the building's Great Hall, Hall of Heroes and mural-filled Texas rooms, you'll see why: gold, bronze and painted treasures are everywhere, and the 11-foot statue of a Tejas Indian set in a cobalt blue mosaic niche is one of the building's finest examples of making bling sing.
