Moving Pictures is a changing exhibition of contemporary art on loan from the distinguished collection of Paul J. Schupf, a Colgate alumnus, trustee emeritus and resident of Hamilton. Begun in May 2007 to honor President Rebecca Chopp’s first five years at Colgate, Schupf has generously agreed to make his collection of contemporary art available to the University as a special on-campus exhibition.

Presently, pieces of the Moving Pictures exhibition are located in three buildings on the campus of Colgate University: Case Library and Geyer Center for Information Technology, James B. Colgate Hall, and the Picker Art Gallery in the Dana Arts Center.

Along with Schupf, the co-curators of Moving Pictures are Colgate President Rebecca S. Chopp, Joachim Homann, curator of the Picker Art Gallery, and Joanne Schneider, university librarian.

The collection of Paul J. Schupf ’58 is known around the world
primarily for its important paintings, drawings, and prints by Alex Katz, sculpture, drawings, and prints by Richard Serra and drawings and prints by Chuck Close. His collection of Serra prints is the most extensive in private hands.

Schupf is a generous supporter of Colgate University and is a member of the prestigious James B. Colgate Society. His many contributions include the Paul J. Schupf Studio Arts Center, the W.S. Schupf Chair in Far Eastern Studies, the annual Paul J. Schupf Fellowship for Study at Oxford University, and the annual Paul J. Schupf Senior Art Prize. He has given 13 works of art to the Picker Art Gallery, and also is a benefactor of Colby College, Cazenovia College, and the Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute in Utica.

A selective on-line catalog of other works in the exhibition is available
