Transformation of the Owen Arts Center

To walk through the doors of the Owen Arts Center at SMU Meadows School of the Arts is to enter a world that transcends conventional boundaries; bridges the classic, the contemporary and emerging frontiers; and equips a new generation of artists, creatives, innovators, and thinkers to become more influential in every sector of a rapidly changing world.

At Meadows, everything we do is fueled by our core belief that the arts impact every aspect of life and culture. And now, with a historic challenge grant from The Meadows Foundation, SMU has the extraordinary opportunity to transform the Owen Arts Center into a space that turns our deepest-held values into action.

Past Meadows parent Marlyne Sexton has recently given a challenge gift to help us raise the remaining $4 million needed to reach our $34 million fundraising goal. Join the effort today!
