Art Collection

Presently, the School of Pharmacy boasts the largest collection of art among all the School's and Colleges within Temple University. The art collection began in 1968 and developed under the guidance of Assistant Dean Fred Gable. Mr. Gable, a recognized art connoisseur and member of the University General Arts Committee, suggested that the graduating class present a watercolor by Ranulph Bye to the School in memory of Charles Unangst, a student who had passed away during the summer following his first year at Temple.

Over the following decades, photography, sculpture, and fine art continued to be amassed from graduating classes, organizations, memorial donations and as outright gifts. The collection now numbers over 170 prints, oils, watercolors, photographs, and sculptures which are displayed in the hallways, classrooms, and individual faculty and staff offices of the School of Pharmacy.

The fine art comprising the School of Pharmacy's collection graces our hallways and offices lending an atmosphere of culture and serenity to the busy, complex and often stressful world of pharmacy education. The School is indeed fortunate to have accumulated these expressions of the artistic impulse, for they provide a cultural theme that complements the scientific focus of our academic endeavors.
