Jindal Art Collection


A growing trend among top-tier business schools is integrating art to enhance the educational experience. The Jindal School provides an engaging, intellectual learning environment that broadens perspective, stimulates originality and creativity, and encourages innovation. Art is a catalyst for ingenuity and entrepreneurship—key factors for a successful career in business.

The Jindal Art Collection features a collection of both contributed and commissioned pieces utilizing various art forms, including photography, sculpture and painting. Art gifts from alumni, faculty and friends began the collection and provided the impetus to assemble permanently displayed works that students will enjoy on a daily basis. The collection reflects the diverse culture and educational endeavors of the faculty, staff, alumni and students at the Jindal School.

Please support the Jindal School’s initiative to advance creativity and innovation in a world-class business education.

Artistic Impressions of Management

Golden Flower, Bowman

Golden Flower, sculpture by Dallas artist Jim Bowman

In 2014, Jindal School alumni, faculty, staff, corporate supporters, community friends and local artists gathered at the school to celebrate the intersection of art and business.

Proceeds from the Artistic Impressions of Management event were used to commission a glass sculpture for the Jindal Art Collection. The sculpture was installed in the atrium of the Jindal School addition, which opened in August 2014. With vibrant colors and varying sizes of molded glass, the sculpture is a visual display of exploration and innovation.

Jim Bowman, a local artist who has been developing expressions in glass since 1978, designed the glass sculpture, which he named Golden Flower, for the new school addition.
