As part of a $150,000 acquisition program coinciding with this week’s Dallas Art Fair, the Dallas Art Museum added eight artworks to its collection by artists showing at the fair. The selected works are by Sheila Hicks, Don Dudley, Arcmanoro Niles, Samuel Levi Jones, Nobutaka Aozaki, Emmanuel Van der Auwera, Maja Ruznic, and Dike Blair.

Dallas Museum director Agustín Arteaga said in a release, “We are delighted to continue our long-standing partnership with the Dallas Art Fair, whose generous fund has allowed the DMA to support promising, dynamic contemporary artists at the forefront of the field.”

The Dallas Art Fair Foundation Acquisition Program has provided the museum with $450,000 in funds over the past four years. Last year, works by Sanford Biggers, Brie Ruais, Tony Lewis, and Geraldo de Barros were added to the DMA’s collection.
