The Arts District is a performing and visual arts district in downtown Dallas Texas (USA).

It is south of State Thomas, southeast of Uptown, north of the City Center District, west of Bryan Place and east of the West End Historic District. It is bounded by St. Paul Street, Ross Avenue, Spur 366 (Woodall Rodgers Freeway), and the US 75/I-45 (unsigned I-345) elevated freeway (Central Expressway). (Previously the district extended east only to Routh Street, but a 9 March 2005 Dallas City Council approval extended it east to I-345.)[1]

The district is 68 acres (0.28 km²) large and is home to some of Dallas’ most significant cultural landmarks including facilities for visual, performing, and developing arts.[citation needed]
