Freedman Gallery Opens, 1976
Albright College opened to the public the new $148,000 Freeedman Gallery Monday, November 1, with an exhibit, "Perspective 1976," displaying the works of 22 artists. The art in the opening exhibit is valued at $206,400.
More than 100 persons attended the pre-show presentation and dedication Sunday, October 31, in the gallery which is located between the campus center theater and the campus center.
The gallery was named in honor of Doris Chanin Freedman '50 who was the largest single donor to the establishment of the gallery.
A native and resident of New York City, Mrs. Freedman is the president of City Walls, Inc., a nonprofit organization responsible for murals on 46 New York buildings. She is also affiliated with other art and cultural organizations.
The gallery is part of the college's Years of Challenge campaign. The next major project is the addition of a fourth floor to the library-administration building.
