Colby Museum of Art opening “The Lunder Collection”

“Girl in a Hammock” by Winslow Homer

The Colby Museum of Art is opening an exhibition “The Lunder Collection” Saturday July 13. In 2007 Peter and Paula Lunder, longtime benefactors of Colby College, promised their collection of more than 500 works of art to the Colby College Museum of Art. The Lunder Collection: A Gift of Art to Colby College, commemorates the formal transfer of this extraordinary gift to Colby. The exhibition presents more than 280 works from the Lunder Collection and showcases the collection’s strengths in 19th and 20th-century American and contemporary art.  For more information visit
