Gene and Jerry Jones
Gene and Jerry Jones, owners of the Dallas Cowboys, are in conversation with the Modern’s chief curator, Michael Auping. When conceiving the new Cowboys Stadium, the Jones family sought to create more than a football stadium. The idea was to build a twenty-first-century coliseum that would engage not only sports, but architecture, design, technology, and art. One of the most exciting aspects of the building is its inclusion of a world-class collection of contemporary art, many of the works created specifically for the new building. For this Tuesday Evenings presentation, Stadium Art, Auping, who was part of the advisory committee for the project, talks with the Joneses about their vision and how it came to fruition.
