O'DONNELL VISITING ARTISTS
Since 1970, The Juanita Harvey Art Gallery (formerly known as the University Art Gallery) has been bringing visiting artists to campus expanding art opportunities for Midwestern State University students and Wichita Falls and surrounding communities. With generous support from the O’Donnell Foundation, we have expanded our proud tradition and bring you our 2010-2011 O’Donnell Visiting Artists.
The O’Donnell Visiting Artists is a program of the Juanita Harvey Art Gallery that allows MSU students and citizens of Wichita Falls to be exposed to the work, inspirations, and ideas of regionally and nationally known artists outside the immediate community.The O'Donnell Visiting Artists logo was created by Patrick Lindor, a student in one of the Graphic Design classes offered by the Harvey School of Visual Arts.
