When people talk about big eyes they probably don't think of 30-foot hyper-realistic eyeball in the middle of downtown. Well if you're ever in Dallas, you might start thinking of eyeballs a little differently. The Eye sculpture is owned by the Joule Hotel in downtown Dallas. Visitors can take as many pictures as they'd like with the massive eye and some can even get quite creative.
The sculpture was made by artist Tony Tasset in 2007. Originally the piece was part of a display in Chicago but it was only ever supposed to be there temporarily. Tasset has also created the very famous massive donut with the words "Randy's Donuts" on it that by now you've probably seen everywhere. The massive eye is made of fiberglass and often you'll find yoga events on the lawn in front of it.
On a regular day, the lot where the eye sits is closed to the public. The eye is on private property where the hotel holds events which means you'll have to get creative for that selfie. The hotel does, however, hold events that are open to the public which includes being able to get close to the eye. We do not recommend jumping the fence to get a closer look since you can get ticketed for trespassing.
There are no upcoming events as of yet but you can always check the Joule's Facebook page to see when you can get your next shot to be as close as possible to this massive eye. You can always visit from outside the fence and don't worry, you'll still be totally mesmerized.
The Eye is located at 1601 Main St, Dallas, TX 75201. For more information, you can check out the Joule here. We can't wait to see all of your glorious selfies with the giant unique sculpture!

Why you need to go: The massive eye is 30 feet tall, making it completely out of this world. You can see it from a distance on a regular day or up close when the Joule is having special events.
