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.
