The McMullen-Connally Faculty Center Collection
SEARCH the Collection


The McMullen-Connally Family Collection consists of over three hundred paintings and artifacts by over sixty different artists. The majority of the paintings are done in watercolor and represent a specific movement called the California School of Watercolor that flourished in the 1930s and 1940s. In addition, several well-known Texas watercolor artists are also included. The collection was gathered over a lifetime by Faber and Roxanna McMullen and serves as a testimony to their great love of the arts. Not surprisingly, Dr. McMullen himself was quite the watercolorist.

The McMullen's had a personal relationship with the majority of the artists in the collection as both admirers and students of their work. In addition to paintings, decades of correspondence between the various artists and the McMullens was included in the donation.

The Collection is displayed on a rotating basis with close to sixty works being displayed throughout the corridors and dining rooms in the Faculty Center. The remainder of the collection is stored in a state-of-the-art, climate controlled conservation room.
