Inspired by the Occupy Movement in 2011, Ken Landauer combines design, art, yogic alignment, woodwork and idealism to make affordable furniture without making waste. FN Furniture opened in September 2017 and the first pieces were delivered to the Museum of Arts and Design in NYC. The Tang Museum in Saratoga Springs, NY and the Dorsky Museum in New Paltz, NY are also furnished with FN benches, tables, lounge chairs, and shelves.

Ken Landauer, Colgate ‘87, has worked as an artist and woodworker since graduation. His public art installations have been commissioned by Socrates Sculpture Park, the Public Art Fund, The Rhode Island State Council on the Arts, and the Kansas City Municipal Art Fund. He lives and works in a house and studio he built in Stone Ridge, NY.

A Colgate Bicentennial event
Located on the first floor of Little Hall, the Clifford Art Gallery presents approximately eight exhibitions a year. A teaching gallery, all exhibitions are selected by Colgate’s art and art history faculty to provide examples of work executed in a variety of media that demonstrate issues originating in the academic curriculum.

The Clifford is free and open to the public from 10:30am until 4:30pm on weekdays and from 1 until 5pm on weekends.

Founded in 1819, Colgate University is a highly selective, residential, liberal arts college enrolling about 2,900 undergraduates. Situated on a rolling 575-acre campus in central New York State, Colgate attracts motivated students from around the world with diverse backgrounds, interests, and talents.
