Young Professionals

Do you want to learn more about all types of art? Do you want to meet other young professionals who share your desire to grow in the arts? Do you want to get more involved in our community? Do you want to become one of Dallas’s young leaders?

If so, then the DMA has a place for you! Between the Junior Associates and the Forum, we have a spot for young professionals who want to connect with art and each other. Being involved with one of these groups is a great way to meet other young people in the community who share your love of the arts and culture.

The Junior Associates
The Junior Associates is Dallas’s premier under-40 professionals group. Members at this level receive exclusive educational and social opportunities, as well as the option to become more involved by participating on a committee.

Junior Associates enjoy an extensive schedule of events, including

  • Private home, gallery, and studio visits
  • Behind-the-scenes tours
  • Exclusive exhibition openings at the Museum

Don’t take our word for it—check out pictures from our events on our Facebook page. Follow us to see the kinds of events the Juniors participate in. And then join us!

An Individual Junior Associate membership is $250 for one person and a Dual Junior Associate membership is $500 for two people living at the same address (or one person and a guest).
