The new Peter Paul Luce Gallery in McWethy Hall hosted an inaugural exhibit of largescale
drawings and paintings by former art instructor Karen Gunderson, depicting the
rescue of Danish Jews during World War II and other examples of moral courage.
New York-based Gundersonís teaching appointments have included Cornell (1968-
1970), the Chicago Art Institute, Ohio State University, and the Maryland Institute
College of Arts. The Luce Gallery was built with a $1 million grant from the Henry
Luce Foundation, given in honor of Peter Paul Luce of Englewood, Colo., son of Luce
Foundation founder Henry R. Luce and a Cornell life trustee. The gallery will be
formally dedicated in October 2003.
