Take a pleasant stroll through the gardens of Dallas’s five-star Joule Hotel, and you will quickly perambulate upon a very odd sight: a 30-foot-tall eyeball that is just sort of hanging out. It might look like it just popped out of the ocular socket of a colossus the size of the Burj Khalifa, but in actuality, it’s a sculpture, created by Chicago-based multimedia artist Tony Tasset.
It was raining lightly, I whizzed around the district, finding the empty spot near the valet parking. I left it there with the hazard lights on. I hurried over the street. I was amazed how huge the Eye was in the middle of the park between the buildings. Too bad there was a fence protecting the Eye.
I went back to my car, the valet guy came, not realizing that I didn’t hear him. He grabbed me by the arm and I think he raised his voice. I grabbed his hand off my arm. I gestured that I was not hearing him, and also signed. He realized it and became calm. He smiled slowly and asked me if I got everything okay. I nodded with a 100 watts smile back at him. We waved at each other and I zoomed off to hunt more of the attractions in Dallas.
By the way, it’s located at 1607 Main Street in Dallas Arts District.
