NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) In a Nov. 10 story about the largest gift in the history of Rutgers University, The Associated Press reported erroneously the number of artworks that made up the donation. The number was 17,300, not 173,000.

A corrected version of the story is below:

Rutgers receives $34 million gift in Soviet art collection

Rutgers University will receive a $34 million collection of Soviet nonconformist art, the largest gift in the university's history

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) Rutgers University is receiving the largest gift in its history.

The university announced on Thursday the $34 million collection of Soviet nonconformist art will be displayed at the school's New Brunswick, New Jersey, campus. NJ.com reports the donation comes from Nancy Dodge, the widow of art collector and economist Norton Dodge.

The collection includes 17,300 works, one of the world's largest collections of Soviet nonconformist art which is notable for using images of Communist propaganda to mock the governing system.

The university says it will also receive a separate $10 million from the Avenir Foundation to help maintain the collection.

The school says the gifts will make university's Jane Voorhees Zimmerli Art Museum the world's principal site for studying underground art from the Soviet Union.
