OBJECT AS SUBJECT: The Lehigh University Art Galleries Teaching Collections – Part 1
August 26, 2015 - May 29, 2016
Celebrating 150 Years of Lehigh University. From the very beginning, Lehigh University has regarded the arts as a fundamental part of its educational vision. Lehigh’s first president Henry Coppée included drawing and painting among the core subjects that every well-rounded student should study, regardless of major. In the 150 years that followed, the University has amassed a world-class collection of over 12,000 art objects, representing a broad range of cultures and materials. Relying on the generosity of alumni and friends, the LUAG Teaching Collection has become a laboratory for visual literacy used by students, faculty, and the community at-large.
