In 2003 a generous gift from Pisces Foods, L.P. provided seed funding to establish the Texas Union Permanent Art Collection Endowment. Pisces Foods operates the Wendy’s food outlets in The Texas Union and Jester Center. Income from the endowment will support acquisitions of original art by recognized artists.
Works from the Texas Union Permanent Art Collection are displayed in the public areas of The Texas Union. As a continual part of the campus environment, the Permanent Art Collection is a unique enrichment program that invites frequent, leisurely encounters with a diverse selection of visual arts by students and patrons.
Additional contributions to the endowment from interested donors enhance the opportunities to augment the Collection, ensuring that the expanding Collection provides rewarding experiences for students, alumni, and the university community in perpetuity.
