"Pursuit of Beauty: The May Family Collection" offers a look at the exemplary Dallas-based collection of American art that was built over nearly 60 years by Thomas and Eleanor May and their children Christopher, Sterling, Meredith, and Laura.

Twenty-four works, whose dates span approximately a century, touch historical and aesthetic high-points in American art and are united by a visual sense of harmony, tranquility, and beauty. The exhibition features oil paintings, watercolors, and sculpture by influential artists, including Cecilia Beaux, William Merritt Chase, Winslow Homer and John Singer Sargent.

The exhibition will remain on display through January 9, 2022.
