In 1934, a 32 foot red Pegasus was raised on top of the Magnolia building, the tallest building in downtown Dallas at the time. For decades, the Pegasus oversaw the growth of the city and could be seen like a lighthouse beacon on the skyline. It became a symbol of home for many Dallasites. Now, the image of Pegasus continues as a recognizable and beloved symbol of our culturally rich and vibrant city. It can be found on city signs downtown, public artwork, local brand logos, and more.
Additionally, Pegasus is a mythological character from classical antiquity that is represented as a contemporary icon. Much like the art form of contemporary ballet, which uses a classical foundation to create contemporary art. The intersection of classicism and creativity is at the heart of our passion.
