Art Matters Endowment

The Art Matters Endowment Fund ensures ongoing educational experiences inside our gallery walls and around our Outdoor Sculpture Collection through free public programs and workshops; hands-on art projects for children and families at our Family Fun Day events; and outreach across the community. Through the Art Matters Fund, unique opportunities are created for people to connect with new ideas shaping art and culture today. 

Recent Giving

The Wilson family has ensured that Carol Wilson’s love for the Ulrich Museum of Art will continue to be present and vibrant for many years to come.

Carol’s dedication to the Ulrich has been immeasurable. She served as the Art Committee/Advisory Board Chair from 1998 to 2001 and again from 2006 to 2010. Carol was active on many committees, and through the Wilson Foundation and personal contributions supported the conservation of the Joan Miró mural Personnages Oiseaux, the acquisition of the beloved Tom Otterness sculpture Millipede, and countless exhibitions.

Daughters Morgan Overman and Melanie Wilson, representing their family, presented the Ulrich Museum of Art with a generous gift from the Wilson Foundation, placing it in the Art Matters Endowment for Exhibitions and Programs Fund to honor their mother.

At Wichita State University’s Ulrich Museum of Art, exhibitions and programs are the foundation of our operations and our outreach to the community. We rely on your support through Salon Circle memberships, sponsorships, and contributions to the Art Matters Endowment for Exhibitions and Programs to sustain this important work. We thank you for your generosity.
