The History Behind Director’s Circle
The Crow Collection of Asian Art opened its doors on Flora Street, to Dallas and to the world, in 1998. This gift to our city from Margaret and Trammell Crow has since welcomed more than one million guests and changed how hundreds of thousands of students and adults think about themselves, their communities, and their world. All gifts made to the Director’s Circle directly support educational programs at the museum, a gesture reflecting our strong commitment to reach students and give them access to understanding Asia in an ever-changing world.
