A recent mid-career survey organized by the Neuberger Museum of Art, SUNY/Purchase, NY, was presented at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, Halifax, NS and the Sheldon Memorial Art Gallery, Lincoln, NE. Her work is included in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the Whitney Museum of American Art, among others. Gornik has received a Lifetime Achievement in the Arts Award from Guild Hall Academy of the Arts, and the Award of Excellence for Artistic Contributions to the Fight Against AIDS from amFAR.

Ford II Building on the Walter and Josephine Ford Campus (201 East Kirby, Detroit, MI 48202). The Woodward Lecture Series, a dynamic forum for bringing renowned artists to the College for public lectures and learning sessions, was established through a generous endowment by an anonymous donor in 1998.
