The Dallas Museum of Art’s Junior Associates is a group of professionals under the age of 40 who share a love of art and culture. Each September, they host a black-tie gala called “An Affair of the Art”, the winning charity in our first drawing of the month! The event has been raising funds to support the museum’s exhibition program for 20 years. The DMA has a collection of 23,000 works, many of which reside in the museum’s permanent collection, incorporating every significant movement in contemporary art to date.
Rocketeer Jourdan Hurst, who submitted the charity, is a proud member of the DMA Junior Associates. She said, “I personally chose this event and organization because I have thoroughly enjoyed being a part of the 2013 movement for free general admission and the launch of an innovative new membership model available to the public for free. This new program encourages equal access to arts education and enrichment by setting a new standard for visitor engagement and patronage. We really are so lucky to reside in a city with museum holdings of this caliber.”
