Sharon and Michael Young, both partners in the investment firm Quadrant Capital Partners, have a head for business and a heart for the arts and philanthropy. Michael grew up in a creative family with an artist sister and playwright brother; he's a longtime supporter of the medical and research organization Dignitas International and often travels to Malawi to visit its AIDS clinics. Sharon is a trustee of the Dallas Museum of Art, vice president of the advisory board at Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts, and, along with Deedie Rose, is co- chairing the prestigious 2017 Nasher Prize. The Youngs' personal art collection — which currently includes some 50 paintings, sculptures, photographs, and drawings — is internationally renowned, and bequeathed to the DMA. Inspired by their friends, also great art collectors, they seek works that add value to the local community.
