Art & Art History reception
Join the Art and Art History faculty for a reception, and enjoy the oportunity to chat informally with the professors and tour the Art building.
Also on view, The Hill Envisioned, currently at the Clifford Gallery. Professor Robert McVaugh has spent the last decade locating and studying the many plans and proposals that have guided the evolution of our distinctive campus, and will be on hand to discuss Colgate's campus history and future.
Colgate's setting–its extraordinary combination of our Hill and our expansive lower park–has long been one of its greatest assets. Few institutions enjoy a setting of comparable beauty or one of comparable challenge. This exhibition shows how architects and planners have helped us imprint our aspirations on this special place. Almost one hundred and fifty years ago, we invited F. L. Olmsted, the designer of Central Park and the greatest landscape architect of his age, to advise us on the management and improvements of the "grounds." Since his visit, prestigious landscape architects and campus planning firms have helped us to realize our evolving ambitions, giving form to our distinctive institutional spirit and to our visions of ongoing educational excellence.
