DePree Exhibition Highlights Permanent Collection

"From One Generation to Another: A Retrospective of the Hope College Permanent Collection" is featured in the gallery of the De Pree Art Center through September 12.

Collection registrar Katrina Herron, a Hope senior from Davison, Mich., culled works from the college's permanent collection reflecting a range of taste in benefactors.

The collection includes paintings, prints, photographs, drawings, sculptures and ceramics, and comes from places as close as Holland, Mich. and as distant as the Netherlands, Africa and Asia.
