The Sponenburghs were also the generous donors of a collection of more than 200 historical art objects representing five cultural areas worldwide, which the University received in 1990. The donation of this collection was instrumental in forming a foundation for the establishment of Willamette's Hallie Ford Museum of Art, which opened in the fall of 1998. Beginning in 2011, the annual Hogue-Sponenburgh Art Lectureship will be organized in alternate years by the Department of Art and the Department of Art History.
