Dear Friends of EODIAH:
This past quarter has been filled with many exciting and successful new programs that have been recently launched at the O’Donnell Institute. It is through the support of our many friends and donors that we are able to invest in these new initiatives and continue our research and graduate education at the O’Donnell Institute where our scholars and students explore the history of art across times, places, and cultures. This important global perspective is balanced and enriched by the interaction with original works of art throughout Dallas-Fort Worth and the world.
Our new Institute for the Study of American Art in China is a partnership between the O’Donnell Institute, the Amon Carter Museum of American Art, and Nanjing University in China and funded by the Terra Foundation. It is dedicated to mentoring a new generation of Chinese scholars through a program of study tours to collections and sites throughout the United States. Our fledgling Center for the Art and Architectural History of Port Cities, in collaboration with the Capodimonte Museum in Naples, brings together scholars from throughout the world to understand the port city of Naples as a center of artistic encounter and exchange, while grounded in close study of artworks, sites, and research materials in Naples.
And we are proud to announce that next Fall, we will welcome the inaugural class of our new Master’s Program in Art History. These bright young art historians will take seminars on topics ranging from the Bauhaus to the global Baroque, while fully immersed in the collections of institutions throughout Dallas-Fort Worth.
Please call me with any questions if you would like to make a gift or need further information. To make a gift today click here.
On behalf of Dr. Brettell and the staff, we thank you for your support and interest in the University of Dallas and the O’Donnell Institute – a unique and enriching resource for all of us.
