Panoramic scenes of the Wild West. Iconic toys. Working drawings by revered architects.
Entrusted with thousands of cultural artifacts and documents, the College of Environmental Design is the keeper of rarities valued by students, scholars and practitioners of the design disciplines.
Visitors can peek inside this treasure trove throughout the summer and fall at the Huntley Gallery when it hosts the “College of Environmental Design – University Permanent Collection Exhibition,” a months-long celebration of arts, design, industrial design, and architecture.
Visitors will be treated to various selections from each of the collections that have been acquired over time by the college, the ENV Archives and the departments of art and architecture. The collections featured in the show are: the Col. James Jones Memorial Art Collection; The Bruce Jewett Collection of Beatrice Wood Ceramics; The Raymond Burr Collection; The Don B. Huntley Collection of Western Art; the Channing Gilson of Mid-Century Industrial Design; the Ink & Clay Collection; the University Art Gallery Collections; and the College of Environmental Design Archives and Special Collections featuring the Neutra VDL House.
