The Bunte Gallery was named in honor of the University’s second president, Dr. Frederick J. Bunte. Located in the lobby of Alumni Hall, the gallery is a unique showcase for local and regional artists, providing an aesthetic experience for Franklin’s students and the community.
Among the pieces on display, the gallery features the Emerson Burkhart Collection, reflecting a 46-year legacy of work that projects a gritty realism by the Ohio native. Also on exhibited is the Elijah Pierce Piece, a sculpture by the internationally-renowned folk artist and son of a former slave.
The Bunte Gallery is open Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.
