Housed in offices at The University of Texas at Dallas and the Dallas Museum of Art, the Edith O’Donnell Institute of Art History was founded as a partnership between the University and the Museum, linking one of the country’s great public art collections with one of the finest public educational institutions in the world.

We also work with institutions throughout Dallas-Fort Worth, including the Amon Carter Museum of American Art, Meadows Museum, the Crow Collection of Asian Art, the Nasher Sculpture Center, and The University of Texas Southwestern Medical School to foster collaborative research, teaching, and programs.

We have developed collaborations with institutions farther afield such as the Museo di Capodimonte in Naples and the Art Institute of Nanjing University in China. Future collaborations include The Swiss Institute for Art Research in Zürich and the Zentralinstitut für Kunstgeschichte in Munich.
