The University of Arkansas at Fayetteville received a $40 million donation from the Windgate Charitable Foundation to improve its visual arts program.

The donation marks the largest single grant made by the foundation after the Walton Charitable Family Support Foundation gifted the art school $120 million.

“We think the University of Arkansas can become a model for what a great school of art can look like at colleges and universities across the country,” said John Brown III, executive director of the Windgate Charitable Foundation.

The foundation’s gift will help to renovate the university’s Windgate Art and Design District, a cluster of art facilities that will be situated near campus.

School officials hope the funds and new buildings will help to inspire and properly train more art students.
