Past Present East West

September 9, 2015 - May 14, 2016 

The inaugural exhibition at the Kruizenga Art Museum showcased approximately 70 works of art from the founding collection. The exhibition was evenly split between art from Europe and the Americas and art from Asia. The objects in the exhibition were selected to demonstrate the breadth and educational value of the collection. Most of the artworks have been acquired by Hope College in the last five years and have never before been publicly exhibited.

Some of the artworks in the galleries were replaced by new selections in January, 2016. Past Present East West was organized by the museum’s founding director Charles Mason with assistance from Hope students Kristin Underhill ’15 and Vicky Fang ’17.
