An exhibition of selected works donated to Grinnell College’s Faulconer Gallery since July 2017 will open on Friday, May 18, 2018.

Titled Recent Gifts to the Grinnell College Art Collection, the exhibition will be on view through June 10 in the Faulconer Gallery in the Bucksbaum Center for the Arts, 1108 Park St., Grinnell.

“Donations to Faulconer Gallery this past year have been remarkably strong. In this exhibition we highlight just a few of the over 200 works of art given to Grinnell College since July 2017,” said Lesley Wright, director of the gallery.

The exhibition will feature:

  • Selected works donated by Dr. Louis and Lois Fingerman, John L. and Roslyn Bakst Goldman, William Thompson ’91, Bennett Bean ’63, and Cathy Bao Bean
  • Eight prints including works by Robert Arneson, Carol Summers, and Sol Lewitt from the Fingermans and the Goldmans
  • Fifteen photographs including works by James Casebere, Edward Curtis, Jim Dine, Sally Mann, and Carrie Mae Weems donated by Thompson, and
  • A selection of ceramics created by Bennett Bean, who will speak in the Faulconer Gallery at 9 a.m. Friday, June 1. He will talk about his ceramics and how his gift traces the trajectory of his career as a practicing artist.

“Through the generosity of these and other alumni and friends, our collection continues to strengthen and grow,” Wright said. “We are grateful to all our donors for their vision and support, and for enriching our students and faculty through their gifts.”

Gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, with the exception of Memorial Day on Monday, May 28.

Grinnell College welcomes the participation of people with disabilities. Accommodation requests may be made to Conference Operations.

The College welcomes the presence of minors at all age-appropriate public events and for informal visits, with the understanding that a parent, legal guardian, or other responsible adult assumes full responsibility for their child’s safety and behavior during such visits or events. In these cases, the College expects that an adult responsible for the visiting child takes measures to ensure the child’s safety and sees that the child complies with directions of College personnel. Grinnell College is not responsible for supervision of minors on campus.
