This is one of the crown jewels of dowtown Fort Worth and has become of the most recognized grand facades. Outside the building graces such beautiful 48 foot angels were sculpted by Marton Varo from Texas limestone. I have seen these beautiful sculptures many times in a photographs, which I can relate to as being a favorite to photograph. They are stunning and do the city proud.

These angels are part of the spectacular "The Nancy Lee and Perry R. Bass Performance Hall" that seat 2,056 in a multipurpose center, which is designed by David M.Schwarz/Architectural Services, Inc. with acoustics by Jaffee, Holden, Acoustics, Inc., of the classic European opera house form. The beautiful 80-foot diameter great dome, artfully painted by Scott and Stuart Gentling, tops the Founders Concert Theater.
