The Art of Shopping. NorthPark Center’s motto merely hints at the treasures sprinkled decoratively throughout the 2.5 million square foot space. Over the course of its time, Big D’s top mall has featured acclaimed 20th and 21st Century art collections allowing shoppers to browse among the works of Warhol, Frank Stella, Mark di Suvero, Joel Shapiro, Jim Dine, and Beverly Pepper. In addition to covetable works of art, the elaborate center boasts well over 235 unique retailers, with even more headed down the pipeline soon. In honor of its 50th year anniversary, NorthPark Center will roll out a one-day celebration full of fashion, art, music, and of course shopping to commemorate 50 years of overall excellence.
