Selections from the Permanent Collection & Art Bridges: Works on Loan

Nissley Gallery

September 8–October 6 and October 12–November 20, 2020

Only open to F&M students, faculty, and professional staff  as part of the college’s effort to mitigate health risks.

 

The Phillips Museum of Art at Franklin & Marshall College is pleased to present a selection from our permanent collection in its refreshed Nissley Gallery. The museum’s permanent collection gallery is named in honor of Thomas W. Nissley ’55 and his wife Emily Baldwin Nissley, who generously provided funding for its care and programming. Routinely refreshed, this gallery is a broad sampling from the museum’s various core collections, including many artworks making their exhibition debut. The collection is evolving and we are deeply indebted to the many generous donors who have helped it grow into a robust teaching resource that can be used to engage with our diverse student population and greater Lancaster community.

The PMA has been selected to receive works from Art Bridges’s art loaning program. The program's “mission is to share outstanding works of American Art with those that have limited access to our country’s most meaningful works. The mission is achieved by partnering with institutions of all sizes on projects that deeply engage communities.”
