Become a Friend

More than three years ago, the Edith O’Donnell Institute of Art History was founded with a $17 million gift from Mrs. O’Donnell, one of the largest single donations in the history of UT Dallas. With her largesse and under the leadership and vision of Dr. Richard Brettell, an exciting future is ahead for the Institute.

To expand the Institute’s work, a new Master’s in Art History will be launched in Fall 2017. This new initiative for the University will prepare a select and highly qualified group of students for careers in art research, education, museums and conservation. With the Institute’s headquarters in the Edith O’Donnell Arts and Technology Building at UT Dallas and the Dallas Museum of Art, future scholars will be inspired and motivated to learn about art in museum settings, taking advantage of an abundance of resources in our regional collections.

Other initiatives include an innovative international research partnership with the Museo di Capodimonte in Naples led by Dr. Sarah Kozlowski, Assistant Director, and a major art conservation initiative led by Dr. David McPhail, Distinguished Chair of Conservation Science. Both are the genesis of new collaborations with museums throughout the world.

We thank the following donors for their support of the O’Donnell Institute.  We invite you to join us as a “Friend” and be a part of Dr. Brettell’s vision to make EODIAH one of the world’s great art institutes and one of the greatest assets to UT Dallas and the cultural life of Texas.
