Highlights from the Arthur E. Klauser '45 Asian and World Community Collection

semi-permanent display

Emison Building (Office of Admission), Shidzuo Iikubo '23 Gallery of Asian Art

In 1991, DePauw received the Arthur E. Klauser '45 Asian and World Community Collection. The gift included Buddhist art, notably icons and mandalas, objects related to Japanese noh theater and samurai culture, painted screens, and woodblock prints from the 18th and 19th centuries. Selected objects from this collection are currently displayed in the Shidzuo Iikubo Gallery, a dedicated exhibition space for Asian art. The gallery was  generously funded by Hirotsugu "Chuck" Iikubo '57 in honor of his father, Shidzuo Iikubo, a graduate of the Class of 1923.

A website was developed for the Shidzuo Iikubo '23 Gallery by a DePauw winter term class in 2013. The course, co-taught by Professor Ota and Craig Hadley, resulted in new interpretive text panels and a guided audio tour. Click here to visit the website.
