Curator Pick of the Month

Title: Snow Goggles
Artist: Inuit
Creation Date: 20th century
Origin: Alaska, United States
Medium: Seal hide, horn glass

Winter’s in full swing and The Drexel Collection is looking forward to some snow days! On average, January tends to be the month when we get the most snowfall. That’s why The Drexel Collection has chosen this pair of Inuit snow goggles as our January object of the month. These goggles are used to prevent snow blindness by blocking the sun’s ultraviolet rays as they reflect off the snow.

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.
