On January 26, 2009, Dallas Arts District was created. Operating under the umbrella of Downtown Dallas, Inc., a nonprofit organization that serves as an advocate for downtown Dallas, Dallas Arts District acts as an advocate, steward and representative on behalf of the Dallas Arts District.

In addition to serving the needs of those in the neighborhood,  Dallas Arts District also assumed the responsibilities of the former Arts District Alliance (created in 1984 as the Arts District Friends) – educating the larger community about the benefits and resources of the district.
