Faulconer Art

The Faulconer Gallery, Grinnell College Art Collection includes over 4000 works of art, featuring works on paper (prints, drawings, and photographs), many in portfolios. The collection spans Medieval to contemporary art, with a strength in 20th and 21st-century European and American art. The collection also includes paintings, sculptures, and ceramics, along with small holdings of African, Pueblo, Seri, and Near Eastern material. Faulconer Gallery in the Bucksbaum Center for the Arts serves as the College’s art museum, presenting changing exhibitions and providing a separate print room in Burling Library for study of the collection.

Works of art recently added to the collection through gifts from alumni and friends and purchases made possible by the Marie-Louise and Samuel R. Rosenthal Fund, Clinton A. Rehling `39 Purchase Fund for Art before 1900, Jacque Z. Baruch Memorial Purchase Fund, Christopher McKee Purchase Fund, Rosborough Fund and the Bea `39 and Joe `41 Wall Art Endowment.

The Brenda Horrigan `88 and Eric Johnson `88 Collection of Soviet Graphic Art is on long-term loan to the Grinnell College Art Collection. The five hundred lithographs, linocuts, serigraphs and etchings in the collection were made between 1966 and 1976 by members of the Union of Soviet Artists. The prints were found in an abandoned elementary school, and through the efforts of Professor John Mohan, placed in the keeping of Grinnell College.
