A Professor Emeritus at Princeton University, Gowin has exhibited extensively in several countries, authored seven books, and received numerous awards. A small exhibit of his work will also be installed. The induction ceremony, which is free and open to the public, will be in the new Danville Hall of Fame gallery in the Danville Museum at 975 Main Street in Danville, Virginia.
