As part of Drexel's commitment to preserving and maintaining the health and safety of all members of its community, starting March 16 many professional staff will be working remotely and all university buildings will only be accessible to those who are issued DragonCards. Due to these measures Drexel Unviersity's galleries, including the A. J. Drexel Picture Gallery, Rincliffe Gallery, Pearlstein Gallery and Fox Historic Costume Collection Gallery will be closed until further notice. Efforts are being made to reschedule and/or extend exhibitions that were planned during this time and information will be available on the individual collections' and gallery websites.

Dr. Bondi was a renowned microbiologist, educator and administrator whose career spanned nearly 40 years at Hahnemann.

Welcome to the Collection

Drexel University, initially Drexel Institute of Art, Science and Industry, was founded on the belief that education should be both practical and cultural—and that art should be not only beautiful, but educational. On that principle, The Drexel Collection—the University’s flagship collection of art—was founded alongside the University in 1891. Today, the Collection remains a resource for historically and culturally significant works of art as Drexel University pioneers a model for the modern, urban university.
