Gifts boost photography teaching, collecting
Gifts from Nancy Sukenik will support the study and appreciation of photography at Cornell through the establishment of a curatorship of photography for rare and distinctive collections (RAD) at Cornell University Library, as well as a teaching gallery and photography fund at the Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art. The curatorship, teaching gallery and photography fund are named in honor of Nancy Sukenik's husband of 40 years, Richard Sukenik ’59, who passed away in 2014.
“Thanks to the generosity of Nancy Sukenik, we are able to honor and share Richard’s passion for photography with generations of Cornellians, researchers and friends of the university,” said Jessica Levin Martinez, the Richard J. Schwartz Director of the Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art. “We are so grateful for all that these gifts make possible now and long into the future.”
