Colgate Alumni Collect '18 features artworks from the collections of three alumni—Andrew Brozman ’72, William P. Carl ’74, and Jane Shapiro ’76—who have acquired works of art throughout their lives and have developed a passion for preservation. With objects ranging from prints, drawings, and oil paintings to clay sculpture and textiles, this exhibition focuses on artistic interests and explores how personal expression is intimately connected with the process of caring for and collecting art.

Labor and Literature is an exhibition curated and produced by Colgate students featuring prints from the permanent collection donated by alumnus, Robert Gordon ’50. The selected artworks include prints by primarily British and American artists that explore the theme of labor, whether visible or unseen. The exhibition also investigates the work involved in printmaking itself and the close relationship between the printed image and the written word, in the process revealing Gordon’s own tastes as a collector.
