‘Paint With A View’ At Reunion Tower


by Mia Estrada 1 Aug 2020 6:00 AM

Every day on Art&Seek, we’re talking to people who have tips on art in the time of social distancing. Share yours with us on Facebook, Instagram or @artandseek on Twitter. Click above to hear Jenna Rushing of Reunion Tower share her tip with KERA’s Nilufer Arsala. 

Just a month ago, the Reunion Tower turned its lights off for the second time in its history to support the Black Lives Matter Movement. In April, the Dallas landmark lit up blue to honor essential workers. And now the Tower has returned to give visitors art from 470 feet in the air.

Buy tickets to art events are Reunion Tower.

Since Reunion Tower opened back up in May, it has made art-creating events available to guests on the GeO-deck. The Tower is welcoming visitors under new guidelines.

Jenna Rushing, the marketing manager, said the events are in partnership with two Dallas-Fort Worth mobile painting companies, ColorHype and Klarity & Khaos.

“People are really looking forward to spending time with their friends they haven’t seen in months, getting out of the house for a date night and reuniting at Reunion Tower,” Rushing said.

Acrylic Pouring

On August 3, ColorHype will present an acrylic pouring art class. A ColorHype instructor will teach you how to mix paint and pouring mediums onto an 8-by-10 canvas. The paint kit will include a general admission ticket to the Reunion Tower GeO-Deck; an 8×10 canvas (you can choose one or two); 2 sticks to hold up the canvas; choices of paint; silicone, gloves; and popsicle sticks for paint mixing.
