Founded in 1846, MacMurray College is a four-year, career-directed educational institution with a strong foundation in liberal arts. Over its 170-year history on the Jacksonville, Illinois campus, the College has amassed a substantial collection through generous gifts from the community and alumni. These include paintings and sculptures by a variety of artists, as well as Egyptian and Chinese artifacts, some dating back over four millennia. Due to limited space, a portion of this collection has been stored away for more than 100 years and gone unseen by the public. At this time, MacMurray College is ready to pass on the stewardship of these works to collectors and institutions where they may be treasured and displayed for others to appreciate. Proceeds from the sale will have an immediate impact on the College, supporting academic and co-curricular programs to inspire student success.
