  ArtLex on Museums
Museums are seen to be educational instruments for the systematic organization and presentation of artistic and natural phenomena.
The museum stands in contrast to the Kunstkabinette and Kunstkammer, or cabinet and chamber of curiosities, of the Renaissance, where odd and wondrous rarities were brought together for private contemplation and pleasure.
Museums operate under the leadership of a board of trustees, who oversee the activities of a director, a person who in turn supervises the work of curators, preparators, registrars, librarians, security guards, and others.

Although the Dallas Museum for Contemporary Arts was short-lived, it was influential in developing an audience for modern art in Texas and set trends nationally.
The museum developed from the Society of Contemporary Arts, which was organized in 1956, shortly after the "red art" controversy at the Dallas Museum of Fine Arts (later the Dallas Museum of Artqv) had been quelled by policy statements issued by the museum's board, backed by the support of the Dallas Morning News.
The society agreed that there was a growing need for a museum focused on contemporary art, and the Dallas Museum for Contemporary Arts subsequently opened to the public in November 1957 with the exhibition Abstract by Choice.
