Drawn entirely from the Johnson’s collection, many works are exhibited here for the first time, featuring gifts of Cornell alumni and several artists with local connections. Artist Louis Eilshemius (1864–1941) attended Cornell in 1882–84. Clara Seley (1905–2003) was the wife of Jason Seley '40, himself a sculptor and later dean of the College of Architecture, Art, and Planning. Clara’s work will be shown alongside her gifts to the Johnson of Haitian art, collected since the Seleys’ association with Haiti’s Centre d’Art in Port-au-Prince. Robert Goodnough (1917–2010), who was born in Cortland and graduated from Syracuse University in 1940, is featured in a variety of media.
