The Smidt Family Modern and Contemporary Art Collection Fund was established by the Smidt Foundation, at the direction of Susan and Eric Smidt, PAR’21 to enhance the University’s modern and contemporary art holdings at the Fisher Fine Arts Library.

Through this fund, the Smidt Foundation is happy to assist the Penn Libraries and at the same time support the University’s commitment to advancing the study of modern and contemporary art.
