The Barbara and Stuart Padnos Foundation gave 35 works of art to Grand Valley. The pieces, from the home of Stuart and Barbara, were purchased by the couple over decades as they traveled and grew as collectors. 
    “I’m just thrilled that we have received this gift,” said Henry Matthews, director of Galleries and Collections. “As collectors, these works of art reflect a shared passion in their life journey. Stuart and Barbara purchased art throughout their marriage beginning with simple, humble works of art, to the increasingly more sophisticated. As a group, it’s a wonderful reflection of the second half of the 20th century that spans their life together."

Fall Arts Celebration 2014 will feature distinguished writers, poets, musicians, artists and scholars. With something for everyone’s tastes, this year’s events focus on making sense of the new and unfamiliar while being charmed by the gifts of timeless classics.

All Fall Arts Celebration events are free and open to the public.
