MEDICI logo

Twenty two years ago Bob Culver, Jim Eisentrager, and Joe Ruffo, with the help of faculty, including Dan Howard, formed a support group for the Department of Art and Art History at UNL. Bob was an alumnus, Jim a professor, and Joe, the chairman of the department.

The group was named MEDICI which is an acronym for "Most Esteemed Donors, Intellects, Colleagues and Individuals." MEDICI was designed to be a friends group that raised money exclusively for the Department of Art and Art History. Over the years this group of esteemed donors has raised over $200,000 for the department.
