The Dallas Museum of Art was founded in 1903, and was a direct outgrowth of the Art Committee of the Public Library. Over the years it has held major historical exhibitions such as Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs, The Searching for Ancient Egypt, The Art of Looking, and numerous others. The permanent museum collection is made up of more than 24,000 objects, dating from the third millennium B.C. to the present day. Known for its dynamic exhibition policy and educational programs, the museum is beloved by the general public in DFW.
Brad Pritchett is the DMA’s new Chief Marketing and Communications Officer. Among his many accomplishments, he has held stints at Dallas Theater Center, The American Heart Association and was also Chairman of Black Tie Dinner in 2020 and 2021.
He most recently oversaw the marketing and communications campaign for one of the museum’s major exhibitions, Cartier and Islamic Art, which traces Islamic art’s influence on the objects created by Louis Cartier and the designers of the great French jewelry Maison from the early 20th century to today. Co-organized by the DMA and the Museé des Arts Décoratifs, Paris, in partnership with the Maison Cartier, the exhibition presents over 400 objects from major international collections. The DMA is the sole North American venue to this exhibition.
