April 19, 2004

The Arizona State University (ASU) Art Museum will receive nearly $4 million in contemporary ceramics from Arizona resident Stephane Janssen. The donation consists of Janssen's entire ceramics collection, with the exception of the works in his home (which are a promised gift to ASU) and his historic and contemporary Native American collection. Janssen, a longtime supporter of the ASU Art Museum, will donate 686 ceramic works to the museum's Ceramics Research Center and is offering another 200 pieces for the museum to sell to raise money for additional acquisitions.
