About us

The Gund Gallery at Kenyon College

The Gund’s staff and board of directors seek excellence across all dimensions of our operations. The following mission and values inform, guide, and invigorate our work and contributions. They stimulate original inquiry and individual exploration motivated through engagement with the best art and artists of the 20th and 21st centuries. They permeate all the work we do for the benefit of our communities and collaborators.


The Gund Gallery celebrates the power of art as a critical centerpiece of Kenyon’s liberal arts mission and our community. We champion the best art and artists of the 20th and 21st centuries via an active exhibition schedule, expanding permanent collection, and formal and informal learning experiences.

  • Challenging assumptions
  • Questioning authority
  • Uncovering structures
  • Exercising curiosity
  • Defying categories
  • Creating culture
  • Experiencing innovation
  • Reflecting excellence
  • Thinking out loud
