The Joan M. Henricks Art Acquisition Fund Established in 2010

The Tufts University Art Gallery is delighted to announce that Joan M. Henricks (J69) and her husband, Alan Henricks, have established an endowed art acquisition fund that will allow the University to purchase new work from recent Tufts/SMFA joint degree program graduates.  The Henricks were pleased to make this gift to Tufts as a way to give back to the University that gave Joan so much as a student.  Although she was a psychology major, she took classes at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts and credits those classes with sparking her passion for contemporary art.  A docent/tour guide at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Joan understands the value art plays in everyday life.  She is excited that students, staff, and faculty will be able to enjoy the art that this fund will help the University to purchase.  She is also pleased to support artists at the beginning of their careers.
