New Books from the Photography Endowed Funds for the study of History of Art and Art Practice

The following selections are recent acquisitions purchased with the Photography Endowed Fund for the study of History of Art and Art Practice. The endowment was originally established in 2007 by our generous donor Richard Sun.  Last year Richard bestowed us with a generous gift once again, by adding another $25,000 to his original endowment, ensuring our photography collection will continue to be enriched well into the future. Below is just a sampling of the many titles acquired with the Photography Endowed Fund over the past year.
