Description
View across the Conference Room on the lower level of the Walker Art Building. In April of 2010 the Bowdoin Alumni Council announced that the 2010 Alumni Service Award would be given to David P. Becker '70 (1947-2010). David's work for the College and for the Museum was a large part of his long commitment to the arts, to equality, and to scholarship. The Museum staff wanted to present David with a gift to celebrate his Alumni Council award and acquired the woodblock for Robert H. Cumming's 1989 work "Alexandria." In a small ceremony in the Museum's Conference Room on June 04, 2010 Kevin Salatino, the Director of the Museum from 2009 to 2012, presented the woodblock to David. After David's death in November of 2010 both the woodblock and a print of "Alexandria" were bequeathed to the Museum. These works are now displayed on the wall of the administrative corridor on the lower level of the Walker Art Building (see hpc6795_15.jpf and hpc6796_15.jpf).
