Raymond Nasher Dies

“Raymond D. Nasher, who left an indelible stamp on Dallas by developing NorthPark Center and giving the city a sculpture collection worth more than $400 million and the museum that serves as its permanent home, died Friday at a local hospital. He was 85.” 

excerpted from his Dallas Morning News obit

I benefit from Nasher’s artistic passions almost weekly, as the NorthPark Mall is one of my favorite indoor places in Dallas to just walk around. By all accounts, he was a remarkable man and one of the city’s most influential cultural icons. In a city so lacking in history and culture, his legacy is incredible.
