Opening on December 5, the Dallas Museum of Art staff art exhibition occurs every two years and is an opportunity for DMA employees to present their work to coworkers and general public. This year's exhibition, Insourced: Works by Dallas Museum of Art Staff, features sixty-eight works by forty-three artists ranging from new interns to a preparator who has been with the DMA for over thirty years. Staff members whose "day jobs" range from curators to gallery attendants are included.
The exhibition, on view through March 13, 2011, is unique because anyone who wants to participate can; even the title was selected by a staff vote. Insourced also has an acting curator - conceived and organized collaboratively by Collections and Exhibitions department staffers, the exhibition placement was decided by Erin Murphy, Contemporary Art Curatorial Administrative Assistant.
Insourced: Works by Dallas Museum of Art Staff is on view through March 13, 2011 on Mezzanine 2 next to the Mildred R. and Frederick M. Mayer Library.
The Dallas Museum of Art is supported, in part, by the generosity of DMA Members and donors, the citizens of Dallas through the City of Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs, and the Texas Commission on the Arts.
