The Dallas Museum of Art has announced a $3 million gift from local philanthropists Jennifer and John Eagle and a $1.3 million gift from the Hamon Charitable Foundation for renovations to its north entrance.
The redesign of the twenty-year-old entrance will include improved vehicular circulation, enhanced pedestrian access, a refurbished interior food service, and a new outdoor dining venue. In addition, the renovation plans include the creation of an outdoor exhibition space at the new Eagle Family Plaza. Construction will get under way in August and is scheduled to be completed some time next spring.
"We deeply appreciate the extraordinary generosity of Jennifer and John Eagle and the Hamon Charitable Foundation in funding the renovation of the DMA's north entrance," said Maxwell L. Anderson, the museum's Eugene McDermott Director. "These gifts ensure that our face to Klyde Warren Park will become more inviting not only for its guests and ours, but also for all those on foot in the Dallas Arts District."
