The "Jack" W. and Gertrude Horan Memorial Art Museum Endowment
The Horan Endowment was established by Michael A. Boots, in honor of his friend Jack Horan. Jack inspired Michael to be involved in community service as Jack himself was for many years. Jack was an artist and writer and inspired young people, including his 11 grandchildren to explore their artistic side. The Horan Endowment provides support for the University Art Museum’s Student Advisory Committee’s activities, initiatives and events. The purpose of the committee is to encourage undergraduate student involvement and awareness in the University’s Art Museum, a fitting way to honor Jack’s memory and help students learn about and appreciate art and the University at Albany’s Art Museum.
