History[edit]

The Art Institute of Dallas was established in 1964 as the Dallas Fashion Merchandising College. It was later renamed in 1978 to the Fashion and Art Institute of Dallas. A year later, the Institute was approved to grant an Associate of Applied Arts Degree. In 1984, the Institute was acquired by the Education Management Corporation (EDMC) to join The Art Institutes, and now bears its current name The Art Institute of Dallas. EDMC expanded The Art Institutes by investing in facilities and equipment, adding personnel to faculty and student services, and establishing a national marketing presence. In 1988, The Art Institute of Dallas moved to its present facility in North Dallas.
