Please give generously to

the wittliff collections.

Your gift to The Wittliff Collections will help us collect, preserve, steward, and share the creative materials that have shaped the Southwest's rich cultural heritage. Please choose from the following areas of support:

  • The Buck Winn Mural, a historic public art project by internationally known painter, sculptor, inventor, muralist, and architectural artist Buck Winn. This 82' x 6' mural, titled The History of Ranching has been fully restored and will be installed on the 2nd floor of the Albert B. Alkek Library in the summer of 2020. This installation project requires a custom-fabricated frame, specialized lighting, and a team of experts. Our fundraising goal for the installation is $100,000. Please give generously.
  • In memory of our founder, Bill Wittliff. All contributions made in Bill's honor will be used to acquire important new collections in literature, photography, music, and film, preserving our cultural heritage for the benefit of current and future generations of students, researchers, and the general public.
  • “The Campaign for Tomorrow’s Wittliff,” our number-one funding priority. Be a Rock Star and donate to this vital campaign today. All proceeds will be used to acquire important new collections in literature, photography, music, and film.

  • The Texas Music Collection Fund, dedicated to acquiring, supporting, and celebrating collections that inspire our region's diverse musical culture. 
  • The Spirit of Place Endowment, a permanent fund that will be used to acquire important works that reflect our region's literature, photography, and music.
  • The Lonesome Dove Endowment, a permanent fund to support the conservation, preservation, and outreach programming of the Lonesome Dove Production Archive.
