Buley Library - Lower Level

The Herman Copen Collection of African Art is on display at the Buley Art Gallery, located on the lower level of Buley Library until Friday, November 30th with an opening reception on Wednesday, October 17th from 4:30pm to 6:30pm.


The collection is comprised of the fifty-six objects donated to Southern Connecticut State University by the late Herman Copen, a man with a passion for art, and an avid collector who had amassed some 3,000 objects from all parts of Africa by the time of his death in 2002. It was Mr. Copen’s wish that these objects be used to teach generations of students about African Art and to experience the uniqueness of African culture.


GALLERY HOURS.  Monday-Friday 11:00am-4:00pm
