Visit Educational Attractions at the University of Texas at Dallas
Known for its degree programs, The University of Texas at Dallas also offers attractions that welcome the public to come and explore. You'll discover an art museum, a library that's used for more than studying, and more.
Here is some of what the university has to offer near our downtown Dallas apartments:
Crow Museum of Asian Art
At the Crow Museum of Asian Art, you'll find a vibrant destination that "celebrates the arts and cultures of Asia." Trammell and Margaret Crow purchased a piece of Asian art in the mid-1960s. It was the start of what would become a renowned collection. The works range from historical to contemporary and come from China, India, Japan, and beyond. The museum opened in 1998 to share the collection with others.
Found on the far northwest corner of the campus, the SP/N Gallery is home to the Comer Collection of Photography. Acquired by Jerry and Marilyn Comer, it started in the late 1970s when he began purchasing rare and important photographs to protect them for future generations. The images date from the 1940s to the present day, and many document American history.
Eugene McDermott Library
The Eugene McDermott Library "promotes a rich and diverse learning and research environment." Its collection features more than three million items. You'll find printed books, maps, DVDs, and so much more. To borrow from the library, you will need a valid Texas ID and a TexShare card. Additionally, the library also offers two computers that allow patrons to access electronic resources.
