Panel to focus on role of Art Museum at Stanford

STANFORD -- A panel will discuss the role of the Art Museum at Stanford from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday, March 5, in Annenberg Auditorium, Cummings Art Building.

Panelists will be James Gibbons, dean of the School of Engineering; Walter Harrison, chair of the department of applied physics; Diane Middlebrook, professor of English; and Sandra O'Brien Patterson, art historian and Stanford Museum docent. John Merryman, professor emeritus at the Law School, will serve as moderator.

The event is being held to welcome the gift to the Stanford Museum from Harry W. (Hunk) and Mary Margaret (Moo) Anderson of 650 prints and monotypes by many of the major American artists of the late 20th century.

After the panel, there will be a viewing of selected works from the Anderson gift and a reception, sponsored by the Committee for Art at Stanford and the Contemporary Collectors Circle, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in the Cummings lobby.
