View from the Art Village: 50 Year Retrospective
Braniff Graduate School Art Exhibit 

Exhibiting together for the first time in a show that spans half a century, View from the Art Village: Fifty Year Retrospective features 43 artists who graduated from the Braniff Graduate School Art Program and have made significant contributions to the arts over the years. Collectively, their work can be found in museums, galleries, churches and convents around the world. Curated by Nancy Cohen Israel, this milestone exhibition offers viewers the unique opportunity to see the breadth and depth of artistic talent fostered at the University of Dallas.

Public Opening Reception:
March 24, 6-9 p.m. | Beatrice M. Haggerty Gallery

View from the Art Village: 50 Year Retrospective will be on display from March 24 - April 29.
The exhibit is free and open to the public. Parking is free and available campus wide.

Highlights:

What makes our pioneering graduate art program so unique, now more than ever, is that the school does not produce only one type of artist, nor do its graduates share a school “style.” Rather, each student pursues their own artistic vision with singular dedication to the process of creating art.

  • April 2 | Exhibition Tour: On Sunday, April 2 from 1-3 p.m., exhibition curator Nancy Cohen Israel will guide a gallery tour.
  • April 25 | History of the Haggerty Art Village Presentation: On Tuesday, April 25 at 6 p.m., Professor Emeritus of Art Lyle Novinski will present a history of the Haggerty Art Village. Check out the timeline display of graduate art program paraphanalia created by current art students on display in the Thompson Loggia. 
  • An artist catalogue will accompany the exhibition. The show presents a momentous opportunity to view artwork spanning 50 years.
