“A Selection of Printed Books from the Collection of Dr. Myron Portenar and Anne Jaffe Portenar” has recently been put on display in the Reading Room of the Fine Arts Library. The installation is in conjunction with the exhibit “A Shared Vision” currently on view in the Arthur Ross Gallery.
The book exhibit marks the first time the Fine Arts Library has been able to acknowledge a collection of donated materials in such a prominent fashion and is the result of a collaborative effort of staff from the Arthur Ross Gallery, the Office of the Curator and the Penn Libraries. Special thanks go to David McKnight, Eun Lee, Sibylla Benatova, Rebecca Stuhr, Dick Griscom, Elizabeth Beck, Constance Mood and Christal Springer for all of their guidance, assistance and can-do spirit!
Stop by the Furness Building to enjoy highlights – artworks and books – from this amazing collection.
