IUF Crowdfunding

Highlights

Dr. Alfred C. Kinsey was one of the most important scientific researchers of the 20th century. As a respected Indiana University professor, he conducted groundbreaking research on human sexuality and established the Institute for Sex Research at IU in 1947. We are asking for donations to support the creation, installation, and maintenance of a sculpture.

More Info

The Kinsey Institute seeks to illuminate the most intimate and formative aspects of our lives through research and preservation. The Institute was founded almost 75 years ago, when an exceptional leader, Dr. Alfred C. Kinsey, began his investigation into human sexual behavior. Regarded as the father of the sexual revolution, Dr. Kinsey’s pioneering work has influenced social and cultural values in the United States and around the world. During a time when even studying sexuality went against societal norms, Dr. Kinsey persevered in the pursuit of knowledge and shone a light on the realities of sexual and gender diversity. Today, the Kinsey Institute stands stronger than ever and continues in its commitment to gain knowledge on critical issues in sex, sexuality, gender, relationships, reproduction, and wellbeing with an expansive interdisciplinary research and education programs, and the world’s largest research library and special collections dedicated to human sexuality, including case histories, fine art, photography, artifacts, film, books and diverse archival collections.

As the Kinsey Institute enters into our 75th anniversary year in 2022, we seek to honor the remarkable Dr. Kinsey, by erecting a monument to him and his legacy. A commissioned bronze sculpture will rest near the Kinsey Institute’s new physical home in Lindley Hall, featuring Dr. Kinsey seated facing an empty seat, ready to conduct an interview, and encouraging any willing participant to become a part of his groundbreaking research.

Dr. Kinsey had a major influence on Indiana University, the Bloomington community, and the world. Your support will help us honor and remember Dr. Kinsey and his extraordinary legacy!
