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.
