Leigh Lane Edwards Collection
The Leigh Lane Edwards Collection of Contemporary Art is named for the beloved former student and PSU Looking Glass Gallery curator who passed away prematurely while a student at ASU. This collection is comprised of 26 works of art chosen from 502 submissions in a national purchase awards competition in 1996 to commemorate the new addition and renovation to the Plemmons Student Union. Fifty finalists were chosen by Belina Chapp, a Juror from the University of Delaware. A committee of students, art faculty, Chancellor Borkowski and PSU administrators selected the 26 pieces which hang in the building today. The Leigh Lane Edwards collection represents some of the best of modern American art done by up-and-coming visual artists from around the country.
