Following are the artists whose work comprises a unique, distinctly Midwestern art collection at SLUH. Their art can be found throughout Backer Memorial—or by clicking on any artist below.

SLUH is grateful to Tim '68 and Jeanne Drone for their generosity in donating these amazing works of art.

Our unique art collection transcends beauty and decoration by:

  • Enriching the total educational experience with an atmosphere of respect and appreciation for art;
  • Offering an opportunity to understand art as a reflection of cultures throughout the world; and
  • Recognizing artists whose works allow SLUH students, staff and its wider community to experience these works in themselves and the broader statements these artists make through their art.
