The Ponder Gallery at Benedict College is totally committed to the preservation of African and African American Culture. Our collection, which is now approaching 200 pieces, focuses mainly on contemporary art on paper. Several of the pieces were obtained through the generous gifts of the many artists that have graced the walls of The Ponder Gallery.
