When Leland Stanford Jr. died unexpectedly just before his 16th birthday, he had already established himself as a dedicated collector who showed extraordinary curiosity about the world. The museum, founded 125 years ago in conjunction with the opening of the university that bears his name, was to provide education and serve as a reminder of young Leland’s enthusiasm for collecting. 

To celebrate this milestone anniversary, the Cantor Arts Center has invited Mark Dion, known for his work on the history of museums and their collections, to serve as the Diekman Contemporary Commissions Program Artist in Residence for 2019. Dion will delve into the original Stanford family collection to create a cabinet of curiosities for the 21st century.
