Collection Registrar Katrina Herron has designed this exhibition to do more than simply “air out” the permanent collection.  She has made it an exploration of the history of the collection, with an emphasis on the people that have created it.  Like photographs in a family album, the art works are records of relationships the College has formed with benefactors both near and far.  In the ongoing work of cataloging the collection, Herron has become aware, on the one hand of certain areas of specialization brought about by donors’ special interests; and on the other hand, the broad spectrum of work.  Our collection includes paintings, prints, photographs, drawings, sculptures and ceramics. The collection comes from places as close as Holland, Michigan, and as distant as the Netherlands, Africa, and Asia.  The majority of works in this exhibition have never been exhibited before.
