Zeynep Pamuk Yale Daily News October 21, 2008

“The Yale University Art Gallery plans to acquire more international art, in keeping with the University’s stated mission of expanding its global presence. Already, there has been a dramatic increase in the amount of international art acquired through gifts and purchases.”
