Dr. Carol R. Angle gives second substantial gift to the Angle Exhibition Fund at The Fralin Museum of Art at UVA
Now retired in Charlottesville, Angle has made it her mission to address many of the world’s greatest challenges.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA.- The Fralin Museum of Art at the University of Virginia has received a gift of $2 million from Dr. Carol R. Angle. The gift will supplement her previous gift establishing the Angle Exhibition Fund in 2016, the first named endowment to support exhibitions at the Museum. The fund is an example of sustained donor engagement that leads to thoughtful and mission-supporting philanthropy.

This contribution marks Angle’s ongoing dedication to the Fralin. Most recently in 2020 she endowed the Carol R. Angle Academic Curator position currently held by Jordan Love.

The Angle Exhibition Fund supports the Museum’s wide-ranging permanent collection and enhances the Fralin’s efforts to mount outstanding exhibitions. The Museum is committed to creating vibrant and intellectually engaging exhibitions that serve the university student, as well as increasingly diverse community and national audiences.

“Travelling on a Museum trip to Cuba more than a decade ago helped me recognize both the strengths and needs of our University’s art Museum, and I have been an ardent supporter ever since,” said Angle. “I am a great fan of new and exciting exhibitions, and serving on the Museum’s collecting committee helped to inspire this gift.”

“The Angle Exhibition Fund is the first of its kind for our Museum. Her leadership in long-term giving speaks to Carol’s commitment to the Fralin for which we are deeply grateful,” said Matthew McLendon, J. Sanford Miller Family director at the Fralin. “We aim to make meaningful connections through art at the Fralin and this fund helps us achieve that. As we look toward reopening the Museum to the public later this year, it’s particularly special to know our exhibitions program has the support it needs to flourish.”

Now retired in Charlottesville, Angle has made it her mission to address many of the world’s greatest challenges. After spending 45 years at the University of Nebraska Medical Center as a pediatrician and toxicologist, Angle became known as one of the nation’s leading experts on lead poisoning. Today, the self-described “museum hound” and longtime patron of the Fralin has shifted her focus to the arts and education in her community and how it can address both health and community issues.
