Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) Awards Crow Collection of Asian Art and Perot Museum with Prestigious Training Grants
Dallas was a big winner when the prestigious Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) announced its list of 28 grants totaling approximately $1.99 million for a new initiative of its “Museums for America” program. IMLS received 147 applications from U.S. museums, and Dallas was one of only two cities to receive two of the coveted training and professional-development grants. The Perot Museum of Nature and Science and the Crow Collection of Asian Art each received grants of approximately $25,000 for diversity and inclusion training so that each organization might better serve the needs of North Texas.
