The History and Mission of the Art Collection Initiative

The College of St. Scholastica's Art Collection Initiative was founded in the Spring of 2020, with several aims and goals. Primarily, this initiative was borne out of the idea that as an educational instution with a deep heritage and lasting legacy, stewardship of art and artifacts held by the college is paramount. Further, the initiative is focused on fostering hospitality and respect through the analysis and care of existing works, and adding future works to the collection as vital component for reflecting our campus community at large.
