An Artist’s Gift: Acquisitions from the Alex Katz Foundation

May 22, 2015September 6, 2015


The Alex Katz Foundation, incorporated in 2004, has played a central role in the development of the Colby College Museum of Art's collection. Over the course of more than a decade, the foundation has given nearly 450 works of modern and contemporary art to the museum. Founded with the mission of supporting artists and art institutions through the purchase of artworks and their subsequent gifting, the Katz Foundation has become a model of artist-led philanthropy. This exhibition will include a selection of artworks by contemporary artists including Elizabeth Peyton and Dana Schutz; artists of Katz's generation such as Ronald Bladen and Al Held, whose reputations continue to grow; and foundational early-20th-century modernists such as Charles Burchfield and Marsden Hartley.

Museum Hours: Tues. – Sat., 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.; Sun., noon – 5 p.m.; Closed Mon. Free tours are available Fridays at 2 p.m. Admission to the museum is free.
