McNay Art Museum Receives $5 Million Gift From the Estate of Nancy Blackburn Hamon

The McNay Art Museum has received a bequest of $5 million from the estate of Dallas philanthropist Nancy Blackburn Hamon, wife of famed oil wildcatter Jake L. Hamon, which will help to endow the operation of the museum’s 45,000 square foot Jane and Arthur Stieren Center for Exhibitions, which doubled the McNay’s exhibition space in 2008. Mrs. Hamon died on July 30, 2011.
