Why Others Support Us
- “As an art-history major in 1954, Asian art was absent from the Smith curriculum. Fifty years later, it is marvelous that the Smith Museum is offering Asian works of art that engage this area of vital education. My husband and I are thrilled to be able to help the Museum realize new collections and exhibitions that reveal the brilliance of Asian art, to find entries to Eastern thought and complement the College's rich Asian course offerings.”—Joan Lebold Cohen ’54, Museum supporter and Tryon Associate
- “The Smith College Museum of Art is an incredible resource with one of the finest college art collections in the country. Not only does it give the academic community an unparalleled educational experience in the arts, it also offers outstanding programs and art exhibitions that engage and attract friends, alumnae, and neighbors. The Tryon Associates—named for Dwight Tryon, a professor of art at Smith from 1886 to 1923—are a group of members whose contributions provide the largest portion of the unrestricted funds that enable the Museum to bring these rich offerings to so many. This support, interest, and friendship are critical to the Museum.”—Jan Fullgraf Golann ’71, Museum supporter and Tryon Associate
