Denning House Art Collection

Main content start

The arts are an integral component of Knight-Hennessy Scholars (KHS) which strengthens scholars’ ability to lead across disciplines and cultures. Works of art displayed outside and throughout the building prompt scholars to engage with the work of global artists who are making significant impact in the arts. The KHS art committee invites these innovative and distinctive artists to spend time at Denning House in fellowship with scholars.

Denning House, and Stanford, sit on the ancestral land of the Muwekma Ohlone Tribe. This land was and continues to be of great importance to the Ohlone people. Consistent with our values of community and inclusion, we have a responsibility to acknowledge, honor, and make visible the University’s relationship to Native peoples.
