The University of Texas at Dallas announced Tuesday that Arts Institution CentralTrak has received a donation of $50,000 from Jay and Ruthie Pack, matched by the Edith O’Donnell Institute of Art History.

“With the impetus of our planned MA in art history and our interest in curatorial studies, the Edith O’Donnell Institute of Art History is partnering with the Packs to provide a new cash infusion to CentralTrak’s budget,"  Heyd Fontenot, director of CentralTrak said

This donation will be used for CentralTrak's projects and to improve its profile on the campus.

“The most unique quality of CentralTrak is that we are hosting and facilitating the creative practice of living artists," Fontenot said. "This is such an important mission. We aren't supporting the arts in some vague sense; we are supporting the actual creation of art. Art literally comes out of our doors. It is a workshop, a laboratory and a creative space like no other in North Texas. It’s vital to artists, and it makes Dallas and UTD true champions of the arts."
