Berea College is home to a valuable collection of art by the internationally renowned painter Dimitrie Berea. The Romanian-born artist had no prior link to the small liberal arts college in Madison County. So how did the Dimitrie Berea Gallery come to be? For that, the college can thank Dimitrie’s widow, Princess Alice Gurielli Berea Terres. After Berea's death in 1975, many museums wanted to house Berea’s works, and the princess prayed for a sign on which museum it should be. Her answer came when she saw a New York Times article about Kentucky that included information about Berea College.
