Friends Collection and College Archives: Earlham Permanent Art Collection

For detailed information about archival & genealogy collection availability check the archives home page.

Mission Statement

The Earlham College Permanent Art Collection (ECPAC) supports the mission of Earlham College by collecting, preserving and exhibiting Midwestern art and craft, tribal art and artifacts, Quaker art, East Asian art, and works on paper. In order to provide increased access to the visual arts, the ECPAC encompasses both a teaching collection for hands-on use and a permanent collection of art and artifacts for scholarly research and curated public exhibitions. The ECPAC provides interested students with curatorial experience. 

Collection and Deaccession Policy

Coming soon!

Loan and Display Policy

The ECPAC supports classroom teaching, research, and campus curated gallery exhibitions. ECPAC collections are typically housed in a climate controlled, secure area and are only brought out for these purposes. Therefore, ECPAC cannot routinely supply artwork to decorate offices throughout campus. 

ECPAC currently has a limited number of pieces that do not fit the collection policy. These pieces may be appropriate for office decor. These items may be available for loan. Additional details are available upon request through the Art Curator.
