#Crow31Days | Day 14at Dallas Museum of Art
It took noted art collector Edmund de Unger over five decades to comprise one of the world’s most geographically and historically comprehensive collections of Islamic art. On April 18, the DMA opened the Collection’s new gallery to showcase these remarkable treasures in the largest public presentation in the Collection’s history. The Keir Collection came to the DMA on a long-term loan agreement with the trustees of the Keir Collection that was finalized in 2014, transforming the Museum into the third largest repository of Islamic art in the US. Within the first month of opening, the gallery has seen many visitors who leave in awe of the objects’ beauty.
