Dallas Museum of Art Names Nicole R. Myers Senior Curator of European Art

The Dallas Museum of Art (DMA) announced today that Nicole R. Myers has been appointed senior curator of European art. Myers previously served as the institution’s curator of European painting and sculpture for the past three years. During her tenure, she has curated various exhibitions, including the forthcoming “Berthe Morisot, Woman Impressionist,” which opens on February 24.

“In her time at the DMA, Nicole has already demonstrated incredible leadership through her significant contributions to scholarship, visionary acquisitions, and compelling exhibitions that highlight the strength and breadth of the DMA’s collection,” said museum director Agustín Arteaga. “I am confident that the museum’s department of European art will continue to grow and evolve in meaningful ways under her direction.”

Since joining the institution in 2016, Myers also curated “Monarchy to Modernism” (2018), “Modernity and the City” (2018), and the only US presentation of the international touring exhibition “Art and Nature in the Middle Ages” (2016), organized by the Musée de Cluny and the Musée National du Moyen Âge in Paris. She also helped guide the DMA in the acquisition of works by German master painter Derick Baegert, French artist Emile Bernard, and Spanish Surrealist painter Oscar Dominguez, among others.

Prior to the DMA, Myers served as associate curator of European painting and sculpture at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. Commenting on her new role, she said: “I am thrilled to be part of such a dynamic institution as it starts an exciting new chapter under Dr. Arteaga’s direction, and I look forward to sharing groundbreaking exhibitions, research, and programming dedicated to European art in the years to come.”
