With his wife Leona, the late Harry Hefner (1911-2006), who was a prominent artist and professor of art at Western Michigan University, formed a distinguished collection of East Asian art - Chinese, Japanese, and Korean ceramics, metal objects, prints, and paintings. Featured in the Joy Light Gallery of Asian Art, selections from the Hefner Collection have been generously loaned by members of the Hefner family.
