UARK Ceramics is pleased to announce an unprecedented gift from the Walton Family Charitable Support Foundation to establish the University of Arkansas School of Art. The foundation has made a $120 million gift, which is the largest ever given to a U.S. university to support or establish a school of art. 

The $120 million gift will be allocated to three primary goals:

  • Providing unprecedented levels of financial support for students in the form of scholarships, travel grants and internship opportunities.

  • Engaging the region in outreach and public service through partnerships with Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art and a variety of community arts organizations.

  • Expanding graduate programs and degree offerings in art history, art education and graphic design.
