Posted: Tue, Jan 11, 2011 9:04 PM

As part of Luther College's celebration of its 150th anniversary, the college is hosting a self-guided art tour through March 18th.

The self-guided tour begins in Preus Library.  It includes the Center for Faith and Life, Jenson-Noble Music Hall and the Koren Building, formerly Koren Library.

The paintings and sculptures on display are part of the Luther College Fine Arts Collection and include people who have helped transform the college such as Diderikke Brandt, H. A. Preus, Linka Preus, Karl Jacobsen, Herbjorn Gausta, "Pip" Qualley, Carlo Sperati and Martin Luther. There are two dozen portraits currently on display among the many in the Fine Arts Collection.

Visitors will find a brochure identifying all portraits and their locations in the Preus Library portion of the exhibit.  The brochure, designed by Luther senior Amber Hendricks, may be used as a walking-tour guide to the rest of the show.
