It’s interesting how the start of a new decade often becomes as much a moment to reflect on the last 10 years as it is a moment to ponder what the next 10 will bring. Looking back on where we’ve come from and the foundation we’ve laid to drive more meaningful experiences through art, I believe now more than ever that our best is still to come. The Museum’s work in the 2010s has brought us to an amazing starting point for the 20s, and I hope you are inspired by the fresh approaches we’ve taken to tell new art stories this spring. The complete transformation of the Center for Creative Connections (C3) space with the new installation My|gration, developed with local community voices, is just one such example. We’re also delighted to provide only the second opportunity in nearly a century to see a rediscovered masterpiece in Flores Mexicanas: Women in Modern Mexican Art, the inaugural presentation by our first-ever curator of Latin American art. And we can’t wait to capture imaginations in For a Dreamer of Houses (cover story), which explores the significance of the spaces we inhabit through stunning and immersive installations from our collection. There’s much more to share so I invite you to read about all that is happening at the DMA and make plans to visit (and revisit) us throughout this season. I am incredibly grateful to be on this journey into a new decade with the Museum, our community, and dearest supporters like you. Thank you for your continued commitment to the work we do!
Agustín Arteaga The Eugene McDermott Director
Inspired by visitor input and community listening
sessions with colleagues at local organizations such as Cry Havoc Theater Company; Break Bread, Break Borders; GAIA Empowered Women; and Heart House Dallas, the Center for Creative Connections (C3) is thrilled to present My|gration, an exhibition exploring how the movement of people is expressed through art. Composed primarily of works from the permanent collection, the exhibition highlights the contributions of artists who immigrated to the United States and illuminates ways crosscultural connections inform artistic production. Three sections—Departure, Arrival, and In Transit— as well as various interactives for all ages, provide the opportunity for visitors to learn more about motivations for relocation, whether voluntary or forced, and consider how works of art can serve as catalysts for civil discourse during times of unrest. The artworks in the exhibition range in medium, place of origin, and time period. Yasuo Kuniyoshi’s Bather with Cigarette holds a special connection to the DMA. Accompanying the work is a series of exchanges in 1941 between the artist and former DMA director Richard Foster Howard, in which
Kuniyoshi requests a letter proving his status as an “American painter of long residence” in order to avoid police questioning during a working tour of the Southwest. This particular juxtaposition of DMA archival material, coupled with additional interpretive choices, positions permanent collection works in new contexts and helps expand our capacity for understanding. Support for the exhibition and related programming is made possible by the Bonnie Pitman Education Endowment to Do Something New. This generous gift from Beverly and Donald S. Freeman allows the DMA to uphold our commitment to providing compelling, engaging, and accessible content for diverse audiences, and to continue examining the role the arts can play in fostering empathy and encouraging perspective-taking. My|gration will be amplified by participatory works created by local artists and will serve as inspiration for programs like DMA Late Nights, Gallery Talks, Make & Take, and the Spring Family Festival. For more information regarding upcoming events, please visit DMA.org.
The Bonnie Pitman Education Endowment to Do Something New supports ambitious new pilot programs and projects that place art and the community at the center of our work. Look for these programs this spring, in addition to the new My|gration exhibition: DMA to Go This pop-up program, featuring hands-on art making and parent information, will be scheduled in conjunction with PTA meetings, school carnivals, and fairs.
Baby Day On February 15 the DMA will partner with First3Years to host Baby Day, a statewide celebration that highlights this key developmental phase in the lives of our tiniest Texans.
Veterans Programming Partnering with Creati-Vets, a national program, the DMA will co-develop a multi-session curriculum that uses the Museum’s collection as a point of departure for discussions, art making, and movement-based activities that invite reflection and creative expression.
Arts of the Americas Community Advisory Council The Arts of the Americas Galleries will be reimagined over the next 24 months under the leadership of Dr. Michelle Rich, The Ellen and Harry S. Parker III Assistant Curator of the Arts of the Americas. This community advisory council will help ensure that the stories told through new interpretive materials and object groupings celebrate and affirm the values and culture norms of the communities whose art and material culture are exhibited.
speechless: different by design Evaluation Using a two-phased, mixed methods approach to gathering data, followed by a quantitative analysis of visitors’ rankings of opinions about the unique exhibition, the Museum seeks to empirically evaluate visitors' reactions to this interactive exhibition in order to inform future design and programming decisions.

gay person to serve in the role. Blanco characterizes the negotiation of cultural identity, community, and belonging in his award-winning poetry. His most recent collection, How to Love a Country, interrogates the American narrative and celebrates the still-unkept promise of its ideals. In celebration of National Poetry Month and the DMA’s new exhibition My|gration in the Center for Creative Connections, Blanco will debut an original commissioned poem inspired by a work of art in the collection.
SPRING 2020 brings a fresh crop of exhibitions highlighting works in the Museum’s permanent collection that explore immigration through the arts and contemporary interpretations of home, as well as loans that offer visitors a chance to see works by leaders of modernism in Mexico, portraits by a Dutch master, and more.
MY|GRATION THROUGH JANUARY 3, 2021 FREE Visit the Center for Creative Connections (C3) to trace the migration of people, objects, and ideas in art across times and cultures in My|gration. Through works from the DMA’s collection, the exhibition spotlights the contributions of artists who immigrated to the United States and illuminates ways cross-cultural connections inform artistic production. The installation was organized with input from local community groups, whose contributions influenced its presentation in the galleries.
FLORES MEXICANAS: WOMEN IN MODERN MEXICAN ART THROUGH SEPTEMBER 20, 2020 FREE Bringing together works by Alfredo Ramos Martínez, Frida Kahlo, María Izquierdo, Diego Rivera, and Francisco Dosamantes, among others, this exhibition surveys representations of women in Mexican modernism and looks at the meaning communicated through depictions of women during a transformative period in Mexican history. The highlight of the presentation is the monumental painting Flores Mexicanas by Ramos Martínez. Recently rediscovered and loaned to the DMA from the Missouri History Museum in St. Louis, the painting is being exhibited for only the second time in nearly a century.
FRANS HALS: DETECTING A DECADE FEBRUARY 23 TO OCTOBER 11, 2020 FREE Two imposing portraits of the same sitter painted a decade apart showcase the revolutionary technique of Frans Hals (1582/83–1666), the first major artist of free Holland. Hals was the foremost portraitist of his time, recognized for “painting character” through virtuosic, loose, and animated brushwork. The portraits of Pieter Jacobsz. Olycan, loaned to the DMA, demonstrate the evolution of the artist’s technique at the highest point of his career.
DALI’S DIVINE COMEDY MARCH 21 TO NOVEMBER 15, 2020 FREE The European Art Galleries on Level 2 will feature a new focus exhibition of works on paper with selected works from Salvador Dalí’s Divine Comedy, a colored woodcut series inspired by Italian poet Dante Alighieri’s literary treasure The Divine Comedy.
DON’ T MISS THESE
FOR A DREAMER OF HOUSES MARCH 15, 2020 TO JANUARY 31, 2021 TICKET REQUIRED Inspired by philosopher Gaston Bachelard’s concept of the psychological and emotional significance of rooms and houses, For a Dreamer of Houses presents contemporary artworks that evoke personal spaces and consider the politics of places we identify with. The exhibition also debuts major recent acquisitions— immersive installations by Alex Da Corte, Francisco Moreno, and Do Ho Suh, as well as large-scale works by Pipilotti Rist and Janine Antoni—along with a broad selection of works from the permanent collection.
SPEECHLESS: DIFFERENT BY DESIGN, the DMA’s pioneering exhibition of interactive installations that explore the spectrum of sensory experience, will be on view through March 22, 2020. Ticket required. Other exhibitions that are on view through March 22, 2020—and free—include Focus On: Alex Katz, featuring works by famed American painter Alex Katz, and Focus On: Ragnar Kjartansson, a presentation of the acclaimed nine-channel video installation The Visitors, alongside a series of commissioned postcards by Icelandic artist Ragnar Kjartansson.
BY DR. MARK A. CASTRO After the holidays, we started getting ready for the opening of Flores Mexicanas: Women in Modern Mexican Art. On view in two fourth floor galleries, this will be my inaugural exhibition at the DMA as the first Jorge Baldor Curator of Latin American Art. The show looks at shifting representations of women in art created during and after the Mexican Revolution. It was inspired by the loan of a monumental painting by Alfredo Ramos Martínez, Flores Mexicanas, pictured at left. A celebrated artist, he began painting this 9-by-12-foot canvas in 1915 in the midst of the violent Mexican Revolution, completing it in 1929. The four graceful women stand in a landscape filled with verdant greenery and luscious flowers. Its beauty is tinged with a feeling of nostalgia, as if Ramos Martínez knows that a period in Mexico’s history is ending. The exhibition will examine Ramos Martínez’s career through his depictions of women before Flores and following his move to Los Angeles after the painting was finished. The show will also feature representations of women by some of Mexico’s most celebrated artists, including María Izquierdo, Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, and José Clemente Orozco, to address common themes in Mexican post-revolutionary art, such as politics and indigeneity, as well as the place of the modern woman in Mexico. Flores Mexicanas was purchased by Mexican president Portes Gil as a wedding present for the aviators Anne and Charles Lindbergh, who donated it to the Missouri Historical Society. It remained off view for nearly a century, but was recently conserved. Although scholars knew about the painting through newspaper clippings, many assumed it was lost. To have it on view at the DMA will mark a rare opportunity for all of us to see one of Ramos Martínez's masterpieces for the first time.
Flores Mexicanas: Women in Modern Mexican Art Through September 20, 2020 Flores Mexicanas: Women in Modern Mexican Art is organized by the Dallas Museum of Art, and inspired by Flores Mexicanas: A Lindbergh Love Story, organized by the Missouri History Museum. Support for this exhibition comes from The Jorge Baldor Curatorial Fund for Latin American Art with media support provided by Univision. The Dallas Museum of Art is supported, in part, by the generosity of DMA Members and donors, the citizens of Dallas through the City of Dallas Office of Arts and Culture, and the Texas Commission on the Arts.

Inspired by 20th-century philosopher Gaston Bachelard’s concept of the psychological significance of rooms and houses, For a Dreamer of Houses will present contemporary artworks that evoke personal spaces and consider the politics of places we identify with. The exhibition will debut major recent acquisitions along with a broad selection of works from the permanent collection. To celebrate the March opening, we reached out to several participating artists and asked, “What locale is being depicted here?”
ALEX DA CORTE
Rubber Pencil Devil, 2018 The Rubber Pencil Devil house was inspired by Denise Scott Brown and Robert Venturi’s Ghost Houses (1976) in Philadelphia’s Franklin Court. It is reminiscent of the skeletal structure of a home Ben Franklin once lived in set upon a multicolored terrazzo floor replica of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood of MakeBelieve. Rubber Pencil Devil is a house of my dreams, an homage to the real and imagined histories the American Dream has been built upon.
Cross Hill Road, Winter, 2002 This was an old, rambling farmhouse in the Connecticut town I grew up in. It was at an intersection on a road leading through the center of town. The house seemed severed from its original setting (likely a farm) in that I'm fairly sure the house was there long before the road was. It didn't seem like anyone lived there anymore or had for some time. Today, it's no longer there. It was taken down and the land built over maybe 10 years ago.
MISTY KEASLER Green Room (Quarenteen) Leagnul di Copii, Tigru Mures, Romania, 2004 These isolated, glassed-in rooms serve as a quarantine for all babies entering an orphanage in Târgu Mureș, Romania. The space was painted by volunteers, a tender gesture meant to soften the cold, institutional architecture of practicality with a palette of pastels. Cloudy sunlight filtered in through the windows, the indirect light coloring the space like a jewel. Healthy new arrivals only live in the small glass rooms for a couple of weeks before transitioning to a communal living space. But others never leave, confined to beds by abnormalities that would have been swiftly treated upon birth in the US. The place, due to its function as an institution, feels cold and clinical. But even with the heaviest of subject matter, there are moments of lightness, places where the eyes can linger more easily, away from the heft that comes from thinking about children no one wants.
ANNETTE LAWRENCE 3708 Utopia Pkwy #1, 1999 3708 Utopia Pkwy is Joseph Cornell’s home in Queens, NY. This work is part of a series that depicts the homes of artists that were based in Queens, where I grew up. I came across the address in an exhibition of letters between Cornell and Marcel Duchamp at the Menil Collection in the late 1990s. This piece is pre-Google Maps. I actually went to the address to take the photos.
FRANCISCO MORENO Chapel, 2016â€“2018 At the Prado Museum, there is an almost exact re-creation of a 12th-century chapel that existed in Segovia, the Hermitage of the Vera Cruz de Maderuelo. The Romanesque mural paintings from the original structure were transferred to the Prado in 1947. I first saw that reconstructed chapel in 2016. It felt uncanny to stand in what was simultaneously an authentic, hand-painted space and a fabricated reality. My Chapel is a personal re-creation of the structure, but, more importantly, of the feeling.

M E M B E R SP OT L I G H T DMA Members share their favorite memories and why they are proud to support the Museum.
Dr. Sarah Samaan moved to Dallas in 1995, immediately connecting with the Museum as a general DMA Member, then joining the DMA Junior Associates, and later becoming a DMA Circle member 16 years ago. Identifying a favorite exhibition is a challenge as Sarah finds inspiration in every exhibition she sees; however, two favorites stand out: the immersive quality of the Jackson Pollock exhibition in 2016 and meeting Iris van Herpen at her 2017 exhibition. This year, Sarah is eager to see Sandra Cinto’s completed Concourse mural, after hearing from the artist at the beginning of the installation, and she was awestruck by the redesign of the European Art Galleries. Sarah supports the DMA because she loves the opportunity to experience art and exhibitions on a more intimate level through DMA Circle events. Sarah says, “I believe that the arts help make a community strong, informed, and inquisitive, and I am fortunate that I am able to support the DMA and contribute to the outreach efforts that the Museum offers to students and other interested citizens.”
Marissa and Jon Jarratt have been DMA Members since 2004, and are currently members of the DMA’s Family Forum group with their son, Henry. Henry’s favorite memory at the DMA is the most recent Family Forum Day, noting how much he enjoyed the big snack table and creating his very own sculptures! Marissa has many fond memories of coming to the Museum from childhood through adulthood, including date nights with Jon at monthly Late Nights, drawing still lifes in the courtyard (while enjoying margaritas), behindthe-scenes tours of the Museum, Family Forum scavenger hunts, and more. The Jarratts support the Museum because they love supporting artists and learning about and enjoying art, while ensuring others can too. They hope that the DMA continues to serve its mission and inspire future generations of art appreciation, patronage, and practice.
Gregory Pynes joined the DMA in 1996. A Dallas native, he shares: “The DMA has been a part of my life since the Fair Park space. My first exhibit was Pompeii A.D. 79 at the Dallas Museum of Fine Arts and I was hooked.” Supporting the DMA is an essential part of his continued journey to learn through curator-led tours, lectures, and innovative exhibitions. Some of his favorite past exhibitions and events include the Ramses the Great and Jean Paul Gaultier exhibitions, plus a visitor favorite, the Museum Murder Mystery event. This season, Gregory loves the innovation of the speechless: different by design exhibition and is looking forward to seeing the May Collection this spring. Gregory believes the Museum offers our city a look at humanity and why the shared human experience is an important part of creating a community.
