Additional Information


Inspired by the diversity of Dallas, this installation of works in the Dallas Museum of Art's Center for Creative Connections (C3) traces the migration of people, objects, and ideas in art across times and cultures.

Composed of works from the DMA’s collection, My|gration highlights the contributions of artists who immigrated to the United States, examines how the movement of people is expressed through art, and illuminates ways cross-cultural connections inform artistic production.

Changes to immigration policy and the recognition that nearly a quarter of all Dallas residents were born in a different country together inspired My|gration. The exhibition was developed by the DMA’s Education department with input from Museum visitors, local artists, and community organizations.
