    This position is based at our Dallas Fair Park. Fair Park covers 277-acres just east of downtown Dallas. It’s cultural, educational and sports facilities play host to more than seven million visitors each year. The park opened in 1886 with what was called the Dallas State Fair. Several structures – including the Centennial Building and Cotton Bowl Stadium – made their debut on the grounds between 1900 and 1930. But Fair Park really became a part of the nation’s consciousness in 1936, when state leaders chose it to host a world’s fair commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Texas Republic. Texas' history, economy, flora and fauna were highlighted in the buildings, statues and murals designed for the event. Architects and artists designed all the new Fair Park amenities in the then-contemporary Art Deco style. Today, Fair Park stands as the only intact and unaltered pre-1950s world fair site in the United States. It boasts an extraordinary collection of 1930s art and architecture.
