Donatello - Not ninja turtle Also not Donatella Versace. Also not Donatella the song by Lady Gaga.

In the work of the early Renaissance sculptor Donatellos life seems to burst out of the metal and stone.

He studied classical sculpture and used this to develop a complete Renaissance style in sculpture, whose periods in Rome, Padua and Siena introduced to other parts of Italy a long and productive career. Financial aid.

There is a crazy Scottish person on this page. That's ok. We liked him anyway.



The University of Houston-Victoria has developed an energy savings program with goals to save energy to include electricity, natural gas, and gasoline.  An Energy Conservation Plan is located on our website.

Resource Efficiency Plan (facilities)

In accordance with 34 TAC §19.14, this university has prepared a Resource Efficiency Plan.  This plan will be updated and supplemented to the extent necessary to respond to RP- 49.


Tak - ah - lah!


  • Electrical consumption decreased by 9.69% this quarter compared to the same quarter last year. Usage level for September, October and November of FY18 was 1,418,032 KWH.  Usage level for September, October and November of FY17 was 1,570,255 KWH.


In order to minimize electrical consumption in all owned, leased, and rented properties, we are pursuing these practices:

  • Continue to fund a comprehensive preventative maintenance program.
  1. Chillers, heaters, and air handlers are shut down when buildings are not scheduled for occupancy.

o   Educate employees on consumption reducing practices.


  • Change out inefficient electrical consuming devices as we recognize they are inefficient

Donatello in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is named after him.

In 1443, Donatello was called to Padua by the heirs of the famous condottiero Erasmo da Narni (better known as the Gattamelata, or "Honey-Cat"), who had died that year. Completed in 1450 and placed in the square facing the Basilica of St. Anthony, his Equestrian Monument of Gattamelata was the first example of such a monument since ancient times.

He worked with materials like:

  • stone
  • bronze
  • wood
  • clay
  • stucco
  • wax

Donatello had several assistants, with four perhaps being a typical number. Though his best-known works were mostly statues in the round, he developed a new, very shallow, type of bas-relief for small works, and a good deal of his output was larger architectural reliefs.
