Dallas — In 2018, the website you're reading became a non-profit under the umbrella of the new 501(c)(3) company Metropolitan Arts Media, which has proven instrumental in the site's growth and our future plans. This spring, you'll see significant changes, including a new website design that is more user-friendly, a mobile version, a more robust calendar, and the launch of a separate website, ContxtDFW, which will cover visual art in North Texas.
