Tragedy: A Tragedy Thursday, Oct 2 - Saturday, Oct 11
(8 p.m. - 8 p.m.) Location: University Theatre.

By Will Eno, directed by Thomas Riccio

Will the sun rise again? It’s looking unlikely, but no worries: our crack news team is on the story. A charming display of witty satire in the face of Armageddon, the play takes the form of a local TV newscast covering nightfall. This 75-minute play serves as a poke in the eye to media in an age of geopolitical uncertainty, pending disaster and a preoccupation with ratings. What begins as a parody of the news media’s vapid patter eventually breaks down into a philosophic exploration of the endurance of humanity during catastrophes. 

Performances to be held on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings. Thursday nights are free for everyone

Tech Talk: The Joan Davidow Collection Friday, Sep 19 - Friday, Oct 17
(6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.) Location: Edith O’Donnell Arts & Technology Building 1st floor Gallery .

Opening reception: September 19, 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.

Opening Friday, September 19, 2014 at UT Dallas' newest facility, the Edith O’Donnell Art & Tech building, major art professor John Pomara curates Tech Talk with collector/contemporary art advocate Joan Davidow.  To honor Davidow’s newly announced and placed gift of her contemporary art collection, Tech Talk features works she has collected over a 20-year period by 15 emerging and mid-career Texas artists whose themes and methods reflect the budding technology of our era.  UT Dallas President David Daniel and Arts & Humanities Dean Dennis Kratz will welcome a gathering of students, artists, teachers, collectors and arts advocates to honor this highly inventive and meaningful gift to the university. 


“Contemporary art addresses the life we’re living right now, and it’s very satisfying and exciting to be able to share it with new generations of UT Dallas students and faculty, for whom I have a great deal of affection and respect. These works deserve to live and be seen, and I hope they will inspire and educate those who have the chance to experience the collection.”

-Joan Davidow


“Joan's gift is both personally generous and symbolically brilliant. Thanks to her, innovative works by young, rising Texas artists will grace the buildings of a young Texas university that is rapidly rising to international prominence,”

-Dr. Dennis M. Kratz, dean of the university’s School of Arts and Humanities and the Ignacy and Celina Rockover Professor of Humanities.


“As an important Dallas-based arts administrator and journalist, Joan Davidow has been actively involved in the fluorescence of the rapidly growing local arts scene. Through this, she has built an unrivaled collection of the works of young Texas artists at the turning points in their career. The works she so generously has donated will both inspire new young artists and raise the bar of quality for their new work. The prospect is very exciting.”

-Dr. Richard Brettell, the Margaret McDermott Distinguished Chair in Art and Aesthetics at UT Dallas




reflex soul Friday, Sep 26 - Friday, Oct 24 Location: Visual Arts Building.

Opening Reception: Friday, September 26, 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.

The show is curated by Professor John Pomara and includes pieces from PhD candidate Jillian Round, LeeDon Moore, who is finishing his master of fine arts degree, and Arts and Technology (ATEC) master’s student Donald Davis.

“When I started my MFA I had no idea what I was doing,” said Moore, who is also creative director of UT Dallas’ Marketing Department. “I had been in advertising so long that I found it very difficult to not have a client or brand determine the end-results of my work. The first thing I had to do was relax and get comfortable with expressing my own point of view. It was much harder than I expected.”

Moore, who is showing both photography and sculpture, representing both digital and analog, said he had earned enough credits to graduate the semester before the Edith O’Donnell Arts and Technology Building opened, but was inspired by the new space to stay in the program an extra year.

“This incredible new space inspired me to start creating digital work again. I took my newfound confidence and point of view and began creating video ‘spectacles’ in PowerPoint. These pieces I am most proud of. They are truly representative of what I learned during my time in the program. These will be shown as a seven-minute video loop during the show,” Moore said.

Visual Art Building hours:
Monday - Friday . . . . . . . 9am to 10pm
Saturday . . . . . . . . . . . . . 9am to 6pm
Sunday . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Closed
