The Dallas Museum of Art’s new mission statement

Dear DMA friends and supporters,

Having just celebrated my first anniversary at the Dallas Museum of Art, I am excited about the many successes that we have achieved together, and by how much we continue to learn about the ways to best serve the community. It continues to be a great honor for me to lead this institution and live in this remarkable city, and I want to thank you for your participation in and support of our many exhibitions and programs over the past year.

As we build on these successes and look forward, Museum leadership and staff are carefully examining how to continue the DMA’s achievements in cultivating connections with its existing audiences, and to make the DMA a welcoming place for our entire community. We are also reaffirming our commitment to making the DMA a 21st-century museum in every way.

As an initial step toward these goals, we have developed a renewed mission and vision for the Museum, which will serve as our guide as we create new initiatives and programs and look to the DMA’s future:

The Dallas Museum of Art is a space of wonder and discovery where art comes alive.

The DMA will:

  • Place art and our diverse communities at the center around which all activities radiate.
  • Pursue excellence in collecting and programming, present works of art across cultures and time, and be a driving force in contemporary art.
  • Strengthen our position as a prominent, innovative institution, expanding the meaning and possibilities of learning and creativity.

We are pleased to share this new mission with you, our visitors, supporters, and community. I hope that you find it compelling and will enjoy many visits to the DMA in the coming year as we embark on this new path. I also hope that by sharing in our excitement, you will continue your support of the Museum, and if you are not yet a DMA Member, that you will consider joining.


Agustín Arteaga
The Eugene McDermott Director

DALLAS MUSEUM OF ART announces ART BALL Chairs Ann and Lee Hobson and reveals theme, “ALL THAT GLITTERS,” for 52nd ANNUAL GALA April 22, 2017

artball-banner-2017

The Dallas Museum of Art (DMA) recently announced local philanthropists Ann and Lee Hobson will serve as chairs of the 2017 Art Ball and unveiled “All That Glitters” as the theme of the annual fundraiser, which will be held Saturday, April 22, 2017, at the Museum in downtown Dallas. Proceeds from the event will support the DMA’s commitment to providing free access to its world-renowned collection, as well as various exhibitions and educational programs throughout the year.

“I’m very proud to be part of an event that supports the DMA, especially its commitment to free general admission, access, and educational programming.  All of the money raised by the Art Ball goes to toward the operating budget that supports access to art,” Ms. Hobson said. “Unfettered access to art is a cause that is very near to my heart, and it is my hope that this year’s Art Ball will allow us to share the Museum’s beautiful collection and educational resources with more visitors than ever before in 2017.”

Selected by the Hobsons, this year’s theme will embrace the romantic overtones and colors of a Parisian spring and was inspired by one of the Museum’s most recent acquisitions, Flowers in a Vase with Two Doves, by nineteenth-century French painter François Lepage. With the assistance of Todd Fiscus of Todd Events, the ethereal scene will be brought to life with extravagant floral displays, ambient music of the period and decadent shades of blue, soft lavender and ivory.

The evening will commence with a cocktail hour inspired by one of the Champs-Élysées’ most iconic landmarks, The Grand Palais. The internationally esteemed gallery was erected for the Universal Exhibition of 1900 and annually welcomes more than two million visitors to revel in the glory and grandeur of French art.

Art Ball 2017 will feature a luxury live auction, sponsored by Christie’s.  The live auction will be curated by Live Auction Chairs Merry Vose and Rajan Patel and will include an array of opulent items, such as: once-in-a-lifetime travel packages, curated culinary experiences, and unique entertainment opportunities. The evening will feature a lavish multi-course seated dinner catered by Cassandra Fine Catering.  After dinner, an element of surprise has been added to the celebration. The DMA has announced they will not reveal the theme or any after dinner details, but promise instead to deliver “Texas-sized surprises” exclusively for Art Ball patrons invited to attend the late-night festivities.

Noted sponsors in place for the evening include: AT&T, Christie’s, Curtis Specialized Moving and Storage, Dallas Art Fair Foundation, Delivery Limited, Inc., Forty Five Ten, Highland Park Village,        J.P. Morgan, Jennifer and John Eagle/John Eagle Dealerships, Melissa and Trevor Fetter/Tenet Healthcare, Neiman Marcus, Peggy and Carl Sewell/Sewell Automotive Companies, Sidley Austin LLP, Stanley Korshak, Modern Luxury Dallas and My Sweet Charity.

Over the past 20 years, the DMA’s Art Ball has raised more than $27 million to support the Museum’s mission of engaging and educating the community through art. Last year’s event raised $1.3 million in net revenue, and the 2017 gala is expected to continue the strong tradition of giving, which has greatly benefitted the Museum and its visitors for more than 50 years.

For more information about Art Ball 2017, as well as underwriting opportunities, please visit www.DMA.org or contact the Art Ball Office at artball@DMA.org or 214.922.1353.

Art and Nature in the Middle Ages opens Dec. 4 at the DMA

artandnature1

Spanning the 12th to early 16th centuries, Art and Nature in the Middle Ages explores the diverse modes of expression and variety of representations of nature in European medieval art, whether plant or animal, sacred or profane, real or imagined, highlighting the continuities and changes. The exhibition, featuring work from the Musée de Cluny, musée national du Moyen Âge, Paris, and on view exclusively at the DMA in the United States, presents more than 100 extraordinary objects, rarely before shown in the United States, that reflect the wide range of styles, techniques, and iconography that flourished during this period. The featured works of art—which include an astonishing array of media, from stained glass windows to illuminated manuscripts—emphasize the fundamental bond between humans and nature, and nature’s constant presence in the immediate environment and spiritual life of men and women in the Middle Ages.

Art and Nature in the Middle Ages will require a $16 special exhibition ticket.  https://www.dma.org/art/exhibitions/art-and-nature-middle-ages

Dallas Museum of Art to Offer Free Membership And a Return to Free General Admission Starting January 21, 2013

DMA Membership and Admissions Model Sets New Standard for Visitor Engagement And Patronage, Encouraging Museum Participation and Community Building at Every Level

The Dallas Museum of Art announced today a return to free general admission and the launch of an innovative new membership model available to the public for free.
