The Grinnell College Art Collection began with 28 etchings given in honor of Maude Little Macy (1845-1926) and $1,200 raised for the purchase of art during the endowment campaign of 1908. Since then, gifts, bequests, and judicious purchases with endowed acquisition funds have helped to build a collection of more than 5,000 works of art. The collection is distinguished by its social and political commentary by artists who have taken up pen and stylus as weapons against oppression, exploitation and human folly.

Modern museums and art galleries have their origins in late Renaissance European private collections of artifacts gathered for study and admiration. This exhibition documents this fascinating intersection of science and art, and explores the shift from private repositories to public institutions. The exhibition draws on Ms. Fearrington's private collection, and was previously exhibited at Harvard's Houghton Library and The Grolier Club in New York City. Florence Fearrington is a former Trustee of the College, 2000-2008.
