AT&T Performng Arts Center, You're Awesome. Tell Me, Why Are You So Awesome?
On Monday, the Dallas City Council's Quality of Life Committee's getting a visit from AT&T Performing Arts Center President and CEO Mark Nerenhausen, who will update the council on the AT&TPAC's Accomplishments in the First 90 Days. The briefing doc that was just posted is mostly a scrapbook of kick-ass moments: kind words from the press, a slide show of events come and gone and assorted "fun facts" (ooooh, a visitor from Blaxland, Australia!). Nerenhausen, of course, will fill in the blanks during the slide show on Monday -- and update the council on the progress of the Annette Strauss Artist Square and the City Performance Hall scheduled for a 2011 opening. Oh, right. Totally forgot about that one.
The committee will also get an update on community initiative events planned during NBA All-Star Week. The best part, most likely: The NBA Cares Day of Service planned for February 12, during which homes on Macon Street in South Dallas and Burnet Elementary will get makeovers.
