Celebrate the International Cat Day on August 8th with our very cute cat stereo print! This is one of the four black and white cat stereo images we had in our collection.

A stereoview is a pair of stereoscopic pictures or a picture composed of two superposed images that gives a 3-dimensional effect when viewed with a stereoscope.

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.
