Leslie Jerome Garfield ’53

March 23, 1932 – December 16, 2022

With a heavy heart we report the passing of Leslie J. Garfield, ’53, a longtime friend and benefactor of the Chazen Museum of Art. Garfield and his late wife Johanna were dedicated council members since 1992, and respected art collectors with a particular love of twentieth-century prints. The Leslie and Johanna Garfield Galleries on the second floor of the Chazen building were named in honor of their support for the museum’s expansion building. Garfield also served on the Tandem Press Advisory Board. He is survived by children Jed (Karen), Cory, and Clare; and grandchildren Clay and Charlie. His beloved wife Johanna died August 5, 2021. His obituary appears here.
