Temple University's newest — and growing — contemporary art collection is the gift of alumnus, artist, and philanthropist Dennis Alter. It is installed at the heart of Main campus in the Charles Library, a glorious architectural gem designed by Snøhetta. The collection is open to the public daily. Please make sure to visit once the library re-opens.
