Help us keep track of the LU art collection!

If you are preparing to move buildings or change offices, please let the Wriston Art Galleries staff know if you are taking any artwork from the LU collection to your new space. It helps us keep track of artworks for inventory and insurance.

If you do not want to move the artwork in your current office, we are happy to come and pick it up – same if you arrive in your new space and there are things you don’t want on the walls. If you aren’t sure if something is part of the collection, we can come check it out, too. Just please don’t stash it in a closet.

Send a note to: wriston-gallery@lawrence.edu and Beth Zinsli or Madison Pierson will be in touch.

Thank you for helping us avoid artworks going missing (like this painting!) and keeping the art collection available for future Lawrentians.
