The O’Donnell Institute engages with area museums, collections, and art historians to create programs and partnerships dedicated to advancing research in the history of art.

Scholars at The Edith O’Donnell Institute of Art History regularly teach undergraduate courses in the School of Arts and Humanities and the School of Arts and Technology at The University of Texas at Dallas, as well as in collaboration with other area institutions.

Our courses introduce students to a world history of art through close engagement with artworks held in Dallas-Fort Worth collections, developing students’ knowledge of a broad range of material across geography, chronology, and medium.
