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. Partners 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 and studio visits
  • Behind-the-scenes tours
  • Exclusive exhibition openings at the Museum
  • Dynamic travel opportunities
  • Invitation to underwrite or purchase tickets to An Affair of the Art, the Junior Associates' annual gala, which raises funds to support teen educational programs at the DMA

The Forum

The Forum is a step beyond the Juniors, for people who know they really want to get more involved with the Museum and have grown in their interest in the arts. Ranging in age from 30 to 50 (and those young at heart), Partners at the Forum level express a deeper commitment to being a part of the DMA. Forum programming includes family events, curator-led tours, events at private residences, and much more.

A partnership is $1,000 per year and includes invitations for two to all Forum events, as well as the standard DMA Partner benefits. Click here to join online.

Through the dedication and enthusiasm of its members, the Junior Associates and the Forum have established themselves as an integral part of the DMA and its future.
