The Pastel-Adorned Pop-Up Art Installation In Dallas’ Design District Separates Itself From The City’s Other Instagram-Ready Attractions With A Slightly Harder Edge.
If your Facetune app game is strong, then you’re likely loving this era of pop-up art installations sprouting up all across Dallas. If nothing else, the proliferation of these spots pretty much guarantees you some hella fire selfies.
The latest of these businesses to enter the fray is Eye Scream Wasted — a collaboration between Brigid Calloway, the founder of the Plano-based alcohol-infused dessert company Ice Cream Wasted, Dallas creatives Candice Anderson, Alexana Segura, Shamar Willis, Rich Mendoza and Rick Gantley, and the Design District art gallery and event space IQ Haus.
Following in the footsteps of the pioneering Dallas selfie factory the Sweet Tooth Hotel in Victory Park and the newer Uptown upstart Psychedelic Robot, this latest Instagram museum is centered around ice cream, both as a not to Calloway’s brand and to one of the original national forebearers of these concepts. But things quickly expand outward from that core, as Eye Scream Wasted boasts a smorgasbord of bright, photo-ready rooms filled with pastel-colored household appliances and furniture, including a purple jail cell, a pink-and-white basketball court and event a pornography-filled XXX room that might leave a few attendees shock.
The installation — or this version of it, anyway — is slated to be welcoming visitors through November 24. Per protocol with these businesses, tickets to Eye Scream Wasted, which start at $37.50 a head, are sold in advance and on a by-appointment basis.
