BUFFALO, N.Y. — Annette Cravens, MSW ’68, has donated her multimillion dollar collection of archaeological and ethnographic objects — dating as far back as 4,500 BC — to the University at Buffalo College of Arts and Sciences.

The collection has been curated into a world-class permanent installation that will be a resource for the entire UB community. The Cravens collection creates a watershed moment for the university, boosting its profile as a center for world cultural heritage research and extends the vibrant role UB Anderson Gallery plays in the education of students, both at the university and elementary and high-school levels.

The public is invited to the premiere opening of the exhibit, “Cravens World: The Human Aesthetic” at the UB Anderson Gallery on March 28 from 1-5 p.m.
