Adlers endow curatorship and programs at the Princeton University Art Museum

A $4.5 million gift from Allen R. Adler, a member of Princeton’s Class of 1967, and his wife, Frances Beatty Adler, will endow a curatorship, lectureship, and a programs and exhibition fund at the Princeton University Art Museum.

The gift’s two funds will focus on European art from the medieval to post-impressionist periods — already a significant strength — with the goal of increasing the museum’s leadership in this field. The Allen R. Adler, Class of 1967, Distinguished Curatorship at the Princeton University Art Museum and Lectureship in the Department of Art and Archaeology, and the Adler Curatorial Leadership Fund will support a curator-educator to study, preserve, interpret and enhance Princeton’s collections and to mount exhibitions.

Founded in 1882, the Princeton University Art Museum is one of the nation’s leading art museums. Its collections feature approximately 72,000 works of art, ranging from ancient to contemporary and concentrating geographically on the Mediterranean regions, Western Europe, Asia and the Americas, with particular strengths in Chinese painting and calligraphy, the art of the ancient Americas and pictorial photography. –
