Mount Holyoke Art Museum Receives 17 Major Works of Art

The Mount Holyoke College Art Museum recently received a donation of 17 works of art from the Arthur M. Sackler Foundation. The works have been on loan to the museum since 2004 but will now become part of the museum’s permanent collection.

The works from Asia and the Near East include ceramic camels from the Tang dynasty, a wood sculpture from China, and a bronze Buddha from Thailand.

“We are truly grateful to the Arthur M. Sackler Foundation for this extraordinary gift,” said Mount Holyoke College President, Lynn Pasquerella. “The Museum is a centerpiece of liberal learning at Mount Holyoke, and each of these works will contribute enormously to our goal of integrating art throughout the curriculum and fostering interdisciplinary collaboration.” 
