Classic Arts News   Dallas Arts Center Gets Another $1M Gift
The Dallas Center for the Performing Arts, scheduled to open in 2009, has received $1 million from the Harriet Lang and Joseph Irion Worsham family. It is among over 100 donors that have each given $1 million to build the Center.

Worsham was a lawyer in Dallas for more than 60 years before retiring. A founding board member of St. Mark's School of Texas, he has been a trustee of the St. Philip's School and Community Center, Gaston Episcopal Hospital and Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children. Along with his wife, Lang, who is daughter of noted architect of Otto H. Lang, he recently established the Harriet L. Worsham Fund for Alzheimer's Disease Research at the UT Southwestern Medical Center.

The Center, which will comprise the Margot and Bill Winspear Opera House, Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre, Annette Strauss Artist Square, City Performance Hall and Performance Park, has been given more $1 million gifts than any other project for the arts in U.S. history. So far, $256 million has been raised toward its $275 million campaign.
