The Dallas Museum of Art is an art museum located in the Arts District of downtown Dallas, Texas along Woodall Rodgers Freeway between St. Paul and Harwood. The Dallas Museum of Art's history began with the establishment in 1903 of the Dallas Art Association, which initially exhibited paintings in the Dallas Public Library. In 1909, the association's collection received a permanent home in the Free Public Art Gallery of Dallas, located in Fair Park. The museum relocated several times over the years, only reaching its current downtown location in 1984, when it also officially took its current name. Situated in the Arts district, the museum is close to several other significant cultural attractions, including the Nasher Sculpture Center, the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center, The Trammell & Margaret Crow Collection of Asian Art, the Arts District Theater, the Ad-Libs Improvisational Comedy Theater, The Dallas Contemporary, and the planned Dallas Center for the Performing Arts.

The Nasher Sculpture Center is a museum located at 2001 Flora Street in the Arts District of downtown Dallas, Texas. The museum was opened in October 2003, funded by Raymond Nasher, and designed by architect Renzo Piano. It houses Nasher's own private collections as well as travelling exhibits. The museum includes offices, two levels of galleries, a restaurant, an amphitheater, classrooms, and an expansive outdoor garden. It represents Nasher's vision to create an outdoor "roofless" museum that would serve as a peaceful retreat for reflection on art and nature, as well as being a public home for his collection of 20th century sculpture. The goal was to produce a structure of lasting significance that would sustain the legacy of the collection and to serve as a kind of noble ruin reminiscent of the solidly grounded archaeological sites of ancient civilizations and their continuity through time.
