For Campus and Community: The Collection of the Grinnell College Museum of Art

August 23 – December 14, 2019

For more than a century, Grinnell College has been building an art collection, which now includes over 5,000 objects from antiquity to the present day. Twenty years ago, the opening of the Faulconer Gallery facilitated a dramatic expansion of the presence of art on the College campus, not only in the form of exhibitions of national and international art and artists, but also in an intensified building of the art collection.

In celebration of its 20th anniversary, and in keeping with the myriad innovative ways that its collections, exhibitions, and outreach programs have grown beyond a single exhibition space at the heart of the Bucksbaum Center for the Arts, the Faulconer Gallery is rededicating itself the Grinnell College Museum of Art. This inaugural exhibition rightly gives pride of place to an extraordinarily diverse and ever-growing collection of works of art spanning both the centuries and the globe, a rich resource for inquiry and inspiration, as well as pure visual delight.
