The main entrance to the Van Pelt-Dietrich Library Center is now open. Van Pelt Library and the Fisher Fine Arts Library are currently open to Penn Card holders, Penn affiliates, and certain visitors. See our Service Alerts for details.

The Kowell Family Art History Fund was established by Andrew P. Kowell, C’01 and Masha Kowell G’07, GR’13 to support acquisitions in the area of Fine Arts to build resources in the area of Art History.   

They created this endowed fund to help ensure that Art History is supported now and in the future because of their passions for the subject and its power to shape and illuminate historical context and human condition.

Through this fund, Masha and Andrew are happy to assist the Penn Libraries and at the same time support the University’s commitment to advancing the study of Art History.
