To date, the Dallas Museum of Art has added over 220 major works of contemporary art to their permanent collection with TWO x TWO proceeds donated to their Contemporary Art Acquisition Fund and exhibitions. Noted artist Laura Owens has been selected as the recipient of the 2016 amfAR Award for Excellence for Artistic Contribution to the Fight Against AIDS.
