Collecting for the Cornell

Collecting for the Cornell was an overview of the many gifts and acquisitions, large and small, that have contributed over time to making the Cornell's collection the gem that it is today.  Our history of collecting is a composite of many individuals, families, and institutions who had in common a love for art and a passion for teaching through art on our campus.  In an anniversary year for the museum, we celebrated them and highlighted the process of building our encyclopedic collection.
