  • Orange Exchange Breakfast – Friday, March 8 – David L. Prince

    What: Orange Exchange Breakfast
    When: Friday, March 8, 8:00-9:30 a.m.
    Where: Barnes Hiscock Mansion, 930 James St.

    In March, we welcome David L. Prince, Curator of the SU Art Galleries as our guest speaker. Learn about the many treasures that are part of the Art Galleries, which is comprised of over 45,000 objects. Expansion in 2008 and recent construction has established a long-term exhibition area for more of the University’s permanent collection than ever before. A once closed storage facility has become an open gallery space where visitors are welcome to examine over 1500 objects illustrating different cultures and time periods in Asia, Europe, Africa and the Americas, as well as collections of sculpture, glass and ceramics.

    While the Syracuse University Art Collection has evolved over 145 years of active collecting, its mission continues to follow the original intent of its founder Dr. George Fisk Comfort: to establish a resource that provides meaningful encounters with objects through the acquisition, preservation and interpretation of the collection to the University community of students, faculty and staff, alumni, and to the region’s general public.

    Over his career, David Prince has developed a number of exhibitions including examinations of Berenice Abbott, James McNeill Whistler, W. Eugene Smith and Ivan Mestrovic. He also created several loan exhibitions, most notably on Yasuo Kuniyoshi and Winslow Homer. In 2011 Prince brought to campus new work by emerging New York artists. He has been a regular presenter in the Galleries’ Lunchtime Lecture programs, most recently giving a series of talks on the sculpture located on or near the campus central quadrangle.

    RSVP (by March 7th) to: cnyorange@gmail.com with the number of people in your party if you plan to attend.

    Breakfast will be ready at 8:00 a.m. and the presentation will begin at 8:30 a.m.  Pre-and post-talk gives plenty of time to meet your fellow alumni, connect, and network.

    Price for the event is $15 at the door and includes breakfast, event, and gratuities. There is ample free parking.
