Sharing Good Fortune II

July 5 – August 11, 2017

Sharing Good Fortune II celebrates the spirit of generosity that has fueled the contribution of many fine works to the Rutgers-Camden Collection of Art.  This exhibition presents a selection of artworks by internationally renowned artists as well as under-represented and unknown artists. The Rutgers-Camden Collection of Art now includes over 500 works of art by such artists as Jennifer Bartlett, Salvador Dali, Helen Frankenthaler, Leon Golub, Yvonne Jacquette, Marisol, Robert Rauschenberg, Larry Rivers, and Victor Vasarely, among others.  The collection has several areas of concentration including (but not limited to): works on/of paper by contemporary artists; works by artists living and/or working in southern New Jersey;  and works purchased in the form of purchase prizes from the annual Rutgers-Camden Senior Thesis exhibition.

Sharing Good Fortune II highlights recent works donated to the Collection in recent years.  The bodies of work highlighted here were donated by Fran and Ellen Zinni;  the George and Helen Segal Foundation; the estate of Olga B. Moore, Rutgers-Camden Professor emeritus; and the estate of Eddy W. Dow, Rutgers-Camden Professor emeritus. We sincerely appreciate the generosity of these donors.
