Lorenz Eitner Memorial Acquisitions Fund Established at Cantor Arts Center

STANFORD, CA.- The Cantor Arts Center announces the establishment of a memorial fund to honor the late Lorenz Eitner, director of the Stanford Museum and chair of the Department of Art from 1964 to 1989. Professor Eitner did extraordinary work to develop Stanford’s art department and had a crucial role in reviving the art museum. In a very real sense, he was the museum’s second founder and his legacy therefore lives on at Stanford. To commemorate his importance for the museum, funds received will be used to purchase a painting that reflects his scholarly interests. Donations should be directed to Mona Duggan, Associate Director, Cantor Arts Center, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305-5060.
