The Rachofsky House is a stunning, modern home designed by famed architect Richard Meier. In the mid-1990s, Howard Rachofsky commissioned Meier to make a home that would serve first as a bachelor pad, then as a private art gallery, and eventually as part of the Dallas Museum of Art, which is where it has been willed.
The works focus on two themes: artwork from the 1960s that explores the nature of sculpture and painting and contemporary works. On display are pieces from artists such as Marisa Merz, Giuseppe Penone, Robert Ryman, Donald Judd, and Marc Quinn. In addition to the permanent collection, exhibitions are held several times a year.
Private tours are available on Tuesdays and Fridays and must be scheduled two weeks in advance. The Rachofsky House is available to rent on a case-by-case basis (no weddings, birthdays, or other personal events).
