Lately, NorthPark Center has been showcasing our new Luxury Ambassador Program created to bring awareness to philanthropies in the community. In anticipation of the Dallas Art Fair, it is an honor to highlight Chris Byrne.

Located at the Fashion Industry Gallery, the 2017 Dallas Art Fair will feature prominent national and international art dealers and galleries exhibiting painting, sculpture, works on paper, photography, video and installation by modern and contemporary artists from Thursday, April 6 – Sunday, April 9.
Byrne serves on the Dallas Contemporary’s board of directors as well as the American Folk Art Museum’s Council for the Study of Art Brut and the Self-Taught. Byrne arrived in Dallas in 1996 and began co-directing a contemporary art gallery. Since leaving the gallery recently, he has gone to work as a curator and a consultant. NorthPark is thrilled to sponsor the Dallas Art Fair and support Byrne’s philanthropic efforts in the arts. Be sure to experience the Dallas Art Fair for yourself! Click here to learn more.
