The couple immensely valued the work of Artist Lynn Chadwick and were proud to hold more works by her in their Ursinus collection than any other institution in North America.

“We believe art should be seen; sculpture should be in public places and art should be in the arena of learning such as colleges and universities.” – Philip Berman
