Margot B. Perot

Margot B. Perot
Over the past several decades, Margot Perot has been among the most influential
leaders and most generous supporters of the Dallas Museum of Art, the Dallas Symphony
Orchestra, and the Dallas Opera, while also providing major behind-the-scenes support for
countless other smaller arts organizations. Margot Perot’s love for Dallas and her quiet civic leadership is one of the many reasons she is so widely respected. So many of the City’s finest institutions and organizations such as The Salvation Army, The United Way, The Perot Museum of Nature and Science, and UT Southwestern Medical Center, to name only a few, have been generously supported by her advocacy and philanthropy. The fact that Margot generously devoted a good portion of her volunteer time and leadership to the DMA and the DSO speaks to her belief that the public needs a strong and dynamic cultural life, as well as a network of social services for its citizens. As our city has emerged as an international center of trade and culture, we can thank one of Dallas’ finest for her sincere part in making it a vibrant city.



J. Davis Hamlin

J. Davis Hamlin
Davis Hamlin has been a long-time supporter of the performing arts in Dallas, including The
Dallas Opera, Dallas Symphony Orchestra and Dallas Black Dance Theatre. His noble patronage is the strong indication of how he affects the cultural life of the Dallas community. All our organizations need donors who care and are willing to make a personal commitment – Davis has done this for many years, through thick and thin, and he is well known for his stalwart support. In addition to his support of arts organizations in Dallas, Davis is very active in St. Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church, where he supports the Music Ministry, among many other church programs. He also serves as a board member for Jubilee Park and Community Center, a catalyst for community renewal for this 62-block neighborhood in southeast Dallas. In this work, Davis not only contributes to the education and health needs for this underserved community but is also a tireless advocate for providing meaningful cultural opportunities for those who live there. Davis does all he does with grace and without asking for recognition. He is a true gentleman and loved by everyone he meets.

The Legacy of the Silver Cup: Annette Strauss

Former City of Dallas Mayor and arts advocate, Annette Strauss, introduced the TACA Silver Cup Award Luncheon in 1979. It is hard to imagine TACA today without the influence of Annette, who served as both President and Chairman for the organization. She believed that the arts are transformational – the values of individuals and cultures of communities – are shaped through the arts. Since its inception, TACA has honored 78 champions of our arts’ community including Annette who received the award in 1985.
