A rumor that the Dallas Museum of Art is considering moving to free admission, confirmed by Jill Bernstein, the DMA’s communications czar, is the subject of discussion in the online D Magazine. Everyone’s in favor of not paying the current $10 admission charge, but canny museum-goers point out that, without a membership, parking itself in the museum’s garage would cost $10! Other commenters contrast the Dallas Arts District with the utopian set-up in Fort Worth, where both the Amon Carter, the Kimbell, and parking are always free.
