A Decade of Gifts and Discoveries

Jan 9 – March 9, 2014

Many will be surprised to learn about the extent of DU’s art collections, which date from the 1890s, only a decade after the founding of the University’s School of Art.  They will be even more surprised to see the breadth and depth of materials donated during the decade leading up to 2014, DU’s Sesquicentennial year. Additional delights include artworks rediscovered after many years languishing in basements, attics and dark corners. Come meet DU founder John Evans as he was portrayed in marble by DU professor of sculpture Preston Powers in 1893.
