The Stuhldreher-Totten Collection
Pittsburgh couple Michael Stuhldreher (1931-2018) and Carol Totten donated 225 objects and works of art to Penn College from 2006 - 2000. The donors began acquiring work in the 1950s and their diverse collection covered a wide span of time and included pieces from almost every region of the world. The College received objects and art from Africa, Latin America, Asia, and North America (including Native American pieces). One of the highlights of the collection is a clay vessel by famed potter Toshiko Takaezu (1922-2011).
