The Art of Shopping. NorthPark Center’s motto merely hints at the treasures sprinkled decoratively throughout the 2.5 million square foot space. Did you know that Big D’s top mall features an acclaimed 20th and 21st Century art collection? Where else can shoppers browse among the works of Warhol, Frank Stella, Mark di Suvero, Joel Shapiro, Jim Dine, and Beverly Pepper?
More than 26 million people each year experience world-class art at NorthPark Center, and visiting exhibits add visual variety to the museum-quality range. Indeed, and just recently announced, a new work will be unveiled in CenterPark Garden and comes to the award-winning shopping destination via Madison Square Park in New York City. Jim Campbell’s Scattered Light installation promises a captivating and magical experience to visitors and is predicted to be Dallas’ most photographed light display for the holiday season.
Comprised of 1,800 dangling light bulbs, Scattered Light is a 3-D matrix of illusionary images created by the flickering grid of cascading lights. Campbell’s installation will draw visitors from across the metroplex to relish in what will be one of NorthPark’s more spectacular demonstrations during the Center’s “Season of Light.”
Campbell is a dignitary in the art realm, exhibiting works both nationally and internationally at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney, Australia; the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; and the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York to name a few. His electronic works are permanently on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York; the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, DC and the de Young Museum in San Francisco.
Jim Campbell’s Scattered Light will be on view at NorthPark Center throughout the holiday season and located in CenterPark Garden.
