Luce Gallery Debut

  Feature Photo  

The new Peter Paul Luce Gallery in McWethy Hall hosted an inaugural exhibit of largescale drawings and paintings by former art instructor Karen Gunderson, depicting the rescue of Danish Jews during World War II and other examples of moral courage. New York-based Gundersonís teaching appointments have included Cornell (1968- 1970), the Chicago Art Institute, Ohio State University, and the Maryland Institute College of Arts. The Luce Gallery was built with a $1 million grant from the Henry Luce Foundation, given in honor of Peter Paul Luce of Englewood, Colo., son of Luce Foundation founder Henry R. Luce and a Cornell life trustee. The gallery will be formally dedicated in October 2003.
