Description
View an exciting new gift of Mathias Alten paintings to Grand Valley State University from George and Barbara Gordon for the second floor gallery expansion made possible through their generous support. This outstanding, growing collection, now spanning two floors, includes oil paintings, watercolors, and archival materials from the Grand Valley permanent collection.

The university holds the largest public Alten collection in the world, as well as his family's archive collection of family photos and letters. Collectors George and Barbara Gordon determined that their Alten paintings should be on permanent public display. The Gordons made the lead gift to Grand Valley in 1999 and continue to build on that gift annually.

Reopening today. Open every Friday and Saturday, 1-5 p.m. Closed on holidays. Free and open to the public. For more information please call 616-331-2563, or visit www.gvsu.edu/artgallery.
