Empathy Academy: Social Practice and the Problem of Objects was organized in conjunction with a Cornell course and the students have conceived a new participatory installation, What is left is felt, as their culminating project. 

Cornell University Library and the Johnson Museum are collaborating on a four-year initiative engaging their photography collections and sharing staff and resources in new ways.

Our “Contemporary Conversations” series, held on Thursday evenings during the semester, bring students, faculty, and community members together to share perspectives on a broad range of themes.

A lively new use of collections and exhibitions was launched a year ago, when the Johnson began collaborating with Cornell’s University Courses.

The iconic sculpture Herakles in Ithaka I by Jason Seley ’40 was reinstalled at the entrance of the Statler Hotel after a restoration made possible by Bob Blakely ’63, MBA ’65, and Pinky Keehner.

The Johnson Museum plays a unique role in helping to envision and implement a dynamic university curriculum for Cornell students. 

The Museum Club was founded in 1996, and two decades later, “For Students Only” events and a thriving program of Student Educators makes us a place for all students!

Recognizing Rembrandt: The Science of Art in Printmaking will be on view from May 11 to June 12 in the Museum's study gallery.

How does art make a difference in your day? Help us keep bringing art and people together with a gift to our annual fund.

The events are cosponsored by Cornell University Library, the Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art, the Society for the Humanities, and the Wikimedia Foundation.
