Harn Museum of Art,

The Harn Museum of Art is named in honor of native-
Floridian and Gainesville civic leader Samuel Peebles Harn
(1893-1957), whose family made the founding gift to the
University of Florida. The Samuel P Harn Museum of Art
opened in 1990.

In 2000 the Cofrin family made a gift
to fund an 18,000-square-foot addition.
The Mary Ann Harn Cofrin Pavilion,
named for the daughter of the late Samuel
P Ham, opened in 2005, making the
86,800-square-foot Harn Museum of Art
one of the largest university art museums
in the southeast United States.
