Art Ball 2016 raised more than $1.3 million and will help fund innovative programming and exhibitions at the Dallas Museum of Art. The Museum relies on monies raised through Art Ball to fulfill its mission. All proceeds directly support the DMA’s commitment to presenting diverse exhibitions, providing innovative educational and public programs, and caring for a permanent collection of more than 23,000 objects—all while offering free general admission to more than 730,000 visitors annually.
