The Wilcox Space, at the heart of Exposition Park in Dallas, is the former studio of the painter John Wilcox (1954-2012) and a site for the exhibition and documentation of Wilcox’s work.

The O’Donnell Institute collaborates with The Wilcox Space to present exhibitions of Wilcox’s paintings and works on paper and to publish catalogues that document his career.

The Wilcox Space will reopen as a site for exhibiting the work of painters in Dallas whose practices, like Wilcox’s, bring together dedication to the craft of painting and exploration of the nature of the medium itself.
