Frequently Asked Questions
I’m not directly affiliated with Kenyon College; can I still visit The Gund?
Yes, our programming and exhibitions are always free and open to the public.
What can I bring on my visit, and what should I leave behind?
We do not allow backpacks in the exhibition space. Bags smaller than backpacks are welcome as long as they are discrete and will not damage the works on display. If you have large bags with you during your visit, please check in with a staff member to discuss alternative storage options upon your arrival.
Strollers are permitted, but in some cases we may advise you to take a stroller-friendly route through the space.
You may bring pencils or charcoal to sketch in the gallery. Please do not use pens, paints, or other materials unless you are attending a dedicated program.
Is there a coat check or space to store my large items during my visit?
We have an unsupervised coat room on the ground floor of The Gund Gallery. We advise keeping any valuables on your person during your visit.
Can we visit as a group?
I’m a professor at Kenyon; can I bring my class to the exhibition spaces?
We welcome class visits to both The Gund and The Annex. For a class session at The Gund, please send a note to our Curator of Academic Programs at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can also bring your class to our off-campus space, The Annex, for programming and other special events. Please contact our Coordinator of Engagement and Public Programs for The Annex at email@example.com.
Can I host an event at The Gund?
We partner with artists, scholars, and Kenyon academic departments to host guest lectures, performances, screenings, workshops, public programs, and student-led initiatives in collaboration with local and on-campus organizations. If you have an idea for an event, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

I’m a Kenyon student; do you offer work-study at The Gund?
Can I volunteer at The Gund?

How can I keep up with the latest exhibits and programming?
What’s the difference between The Gund and The Gund Gallery?
In Fall 2023, we changed our name to The Gund to mark the exciting expansion of our programming and physical presence in Knox County. The Gund encompasses all we do at The Gund Gallery—our central facility and exhibition space on the Kenyon campus—and our satellite space, The Annex, in Mt. Vernon.
How can I donate or loan items to the museum?
While many works in our collection are the result of individual donations, only a small percentage of donation offers can be accepted after a rigorous selection process. If you believe you have an item of interest, please send a detailed description, with photos if possible, to firstname.lastname@example.org. All works are reviewed in December by our Collections Committee and decisions are made based on the object’s cultural relevance and alignment with the museum’s vision.
