Artrageous: An Affair of the Art 2014
Benefiting the Dallas Museum of Art’s teen educational programs

Saturday, September 20, 2014

An Affair of the Art has been the city’s premier event for young professionals for the past two decades, raising more than $2 million for the DMA since its inception. Last year’s event was a record-breaking success—over 500 of Dallas’s young leaders attended the soiree, raising the funds to completely underwrite a year’s worth of teen educational programs at the DMA. Proceeds from the gala will again support programs for teens at the DMA, programs that fill an important community need by providing youth with creative ways to learn about and connect with art.

This year’s event is sure to draw even more energy and support for the Museum. While we’re keeping the evening’s details a surprise (hint: there will be art everywhere), it will be a night to remember!
