New Acquisitions: Highlights from The Drexel Collection

Monday, June 28, 2021

9:00 AM-6:00 PM

Exhibition from June 28, 2021, through October 22, 2021. All visitors without a Dragon card must check in for a visitor pass.

The Drexel Collection has been actively collecting since its founding in 1891. The earliest acquisitions were purchases at the Chicago Columbian Exposition in 1893 and donations made by Drexel family members and friends including Anthony J. Drexel, James MacAlister, James W. Paul, and George W. Childs. The collection grew through the 20th century with donations from Drexel family members, faculty, students, alumni, and friends of Drexel University.  

This exhibition is a survey of what the Drexel Collection has collected throughout the last four years. With these donations we are able to continuously diversify the collection, as well as expand the collection’s parameters. 

This exhibition was curated by Mary Elizabeth Kulesa ’22 as a part of her undergraduate Co-Op. Mary is a Photography and Art History double major and is excited to be working with new photographs added to the Drexel Collection. Special thanks is due to all of the donors who have helped expand the collection.
