Tour Guide: Phil Whitfield, Cowboys Stadium
Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas is known as a mecca for sports and entertainment events. What is less known is the amazing collection of contemporary artwork that is located at the stadium. This collection was assembled and commissioned by the Jones family along with an advisory group of distinguished leaders in the North Texas cultural community. The net result is a collection of world class art that often surprises visitors to the stadium.
The collection consists of 46 works by 35 established and emerging artists. Of these works, 14 were commissioned for specific locations in the stadium. All of the exhibited artists have pieces in permanent collections of prestigious museums around the world.
The tour will be guided by Phil Whitfield, the art ambassador for the stadium. Whitfield’s knowledge of the artists, their work and the installation of the work makes for an educational and sometimes humorous tour of the complex.
“The works in the collection are united by their boldness, vigor and resolve. They not only hold their own in a crowd, but have the power to transform massive public spaces into impossible-to-mistake locations where visitors from all over the world come together.” - David Pagel, Heart and Soul: The Art at Cowboys Stadium
