Pieces from the personal collections of Wartburg College faculty and friends will be on display in the college’s Waldemar A. Schmidt Art Gallery beginning Wednesday, Sept. 1.
The exhibit, “Wartburg Collects: Art from the Collections of Wartburg Faculty, Family, and Friends,” is a survey of what drives art lovers to collect art in their own homes and what visual elements inspire them. It will run through Oct. 15.
