The Dallas Museum of Art will host the second annual Decorative Arts Symposium benefiting the Museum’s Decorative Arts Acquisition Endowment Fund on Thursday, September 21, from 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
This year’s Symposium will include coffee and breakfast bites, followed by welcoming remarks in the Horchow Auditorium, by Agustín Arteaga, Eugene McDermott Director of the Dallas Museum of Art. Featured Symposium speakers will include award-winning garden designer, acclaimed author, television host and conservationist P. Allen Smith; John Hays, deputy chairman of Christie’s; and Ann Pailthorp, who leads the North American Colour Consultancy Program for British craftsmen in paint and paper, Farrow and Ball. A book signing with all speakers will immediately follow.
I am so excited to be able to bring in speakers from all over the country to the Dallas Museum of Art, which has one of the foremost decorative arts collections in the country. The Symposium will provide a rare opportunity for the Dallas community to meet these experts in their fields of decorative arts, in an intimate setting, as they discuss the decorative arts and how they impact our lives every day.
I hope everyone will make plans to join us! Tickets are $75 each and can be purchased online at dma.ticketleap.com/decorative-arts-symposium/.
