Art for All
Dallas Museum of Art launches new program with free tickets on Sundays
The Dallas Museum of Art will introduce a new program in 2024 that opens its doors a little wider: Called FREE First Sundays: Access for All, it expands the museum’s free general admission to include all ticketed exhibitions on the first Sunday of each month through the end of 2026.
General admission to the DMA has been free since 2013, with visitors encouraged to reserve tickets in advance. It includes the Museum's collection galleries and most exhibitions; but certain exhibitions and programs require an admission ticket, typically $40.
Now, visitors on first Sundays will be able to see them for free.
This will include exhibitions such as "Abraham Ángel: Between Wonder and Seduction," "Afro-Atlantic Histories," and "He Said/She Said: Contemporary Women Artists Interject," all starting in January 2024.
The program is available via the Art Bridges Foundation, founded by Walmart heiress Alice Walton, whose Access for All program is a three-year funding initiative that aims to increase access to museums across America.
“Providing access to art for all is an essential tenet of our institution,” says the DMA's Eugene McDermott Director Agustín Arteaga in a statement. “We are grateful to the Art Bridges Foundation for helping us expand upon our free general admission offerings to extend a welcoming hand to each and every corner of our community.”
The DMA will offer companion programs designed to expand on guests’ experiences with the artworks on view such as Open Studio art-making activities, docent-led tours, family guides, and scavenger hunts.
Visitors will also be able to view over 5,000 years of permanent collection works by artists such as Georgia O’Keeffe, Salvador Dalí, and Jaune Quick-to-See Smith.
No reservations are required for new program.
