About the Crow Collection of Asian Art
Located in the Dallas Arts District, The Trammell and Margaret Crow Collection of Asian Art opened to the general public as a permanent museum in December 1998. Continuing the legacy of Trammell and Margaret Crow’s vision, the museum’s distinguished collection and public programs are dedicated to the arts and cultures of China, Japan, India and Southeast Asia. Just 15 years in operation, this lovingly curated free museum offers a serene setting for quiet reflection in the heart of downtown Dallas. The Crow Collection is an exciting place to work as the museum is actively expanding its collections, hosts 2-4 temporary exhibitions a year, and the content of programs is constantly changing to reflect the exhibition schedule and the interests of the Dallas-Fort Worth community. In the Fall of 2013, the museum will begin to unveil its expansion project beginning with the opening of the Crow Collection of Asian Art Sculpture Garden in October.
