Yesterday, Gund Gallery officially launched the brand-new Gund Gallery Art Loan Program. Any Kenyon student can enter the lottery-based system (similar to the housing lottery) for a chance to select one of 38 pieces specifically set aside for this opportunity to get students more comfortable interacting with art. Similar programs have been operating at schools like Oberlin, Williams, and Harvard for decades and have proven to be an exciting way to make art accessible, familiar, and a part of a student’s personal living space.
Initially students had yesterday and today to enter their names into the lottery, but due to popular demand the exhibition has been extended to Sunday, February 7th at 5 pm. Winning students will now pick up works during common hour on Tuesday, February 9th.
The pieces up for loan are currently on exhibition in the Buchwald-Wright Gallery (found in the far back corner of the upstairs gallery space). The gallery operates on these hours:
- Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday 1-7PM
- Thursday 1-10PM
- Saturday & Sunday 1-5PM
