The Hope College and Holland community have partnered in cultural enrichment over the years. Hope’s fine arts collection is noteworthy and warrants ample and appropriate space. The proposed Kruizenga Art Museum will house Hope’s collection and include two galleries, one as a rotating gallery for special exhibitions and a second gallery for the permanent collection with viewing space for classes. These exciting plans demonstrate that Hope places great value on the role of art to enhance lives on campus and in the community.

  • The Maurice Kawashima Collection of Japanese Ceramics (includes masterworks dating as far back as the 18th century)
  • The Orville Beattie Collection of Modern Prints (includes prints by Benton, Chagall, Moore, Miró, and Picasso)

The Kruizenga Art Museum at Hope College will serve the college’s mission by helping to make its collection relevant to teaching and research across the disciplines through special exhibitions, events, publications, and class visits. In addition, the campus and the community will gain an attractive building that draws attention to the college and the authentic experience of seeing original works of art in person.

The museum will provide beautiful and adaptable exhibition spaces. Open, inviting space will allow Hope to offer opportunities for community involvement in exhibitions, lectures, and socializing. With new spaces, students and faculty will realize their full potential and Hope will continue to live up to its reputation, ensuring the value of a Hope College arts education.
