Jesuit Dallas Museum

The Jesuit Dallas Museum is a remarkable center for innovative visual arts. All housed in a bustling high school for boys is a memorable complex of galleries and courtyards. The JDM is distinguished by the depth and range of its art collection with 490 pieces. Internationally celebrated artists share space with a rich trove of Southwestern works. Works by Dali, Chihuly, and Pena are as likely to fill an alcove as Texas State Flags are to hug the walls of an intimate hallway. Take part in one of our spirited programs that focus on the role of the arts in shaping the soul and inspiring discovery. Join us for a tour of a unique collection that seeks to make the commonplace beautiful and meaningful.

For information regarding the museum please contact the Museum Director, Elizabeth Hunt Blanc, at 972-387-8700 x383 or ehuntblanc@jesuitcp.org.
