Kellogg School's stunning Inuit art collection is a cause for celebration at the Allen Center

The James L. Allen Center on Northwestern University's Evanston campus is home not only to the Kellogg School's No. 1-ranked Executive Education program, but it also contains a spectacular sculpture and original lithograph collection of Inuit art.
  Nuna Parr

Inuit master carver Nuna Parr displays his artistic skill by sculpting a figure of a bear during an event at the James L. Allen Center.

  Guests at the Allen Center

Guests enjoy one of the many museum-quality art objects on permanent display in the James L. Allen Center.


More than 300 individual pieces of art, carefully curated and mounted throughout the building, complement the Allen Center's dynamic living-learning environment.

The facility's principal collector and donor is Donald P. Jacobs, dean emeritus of the Kellogg School, whose love for the art dates to the mid-1980s when he first glimpsed a sculpture at the World's Fair in British Columbia. The Allen Center collection is now one of the most substantial in the Midwest and is a wonderful showcase for the art. Kellogg School executive students have also gifted the university with some of the works.

On Sept. 16, Kellogg, in conjunction with the Inuit Art Society, the Mitchell Museum of the American Indian in Evanston, the Dennos Museum Center in Michigan and the Friends and Associates of the Canadian Consulate of Chicago, honored Don Jacobs by hosting a cocktail reception and walking tour of the collection. Guests were also treated to an on-site carving by master carver Nuna Parr (the Allen Center houses several of his sculptures) and a slide presentation by Mattiusi Iyaituk, master carver and president of the Inuit Art Foundation of Canada, both from Cape Dorset.
