New Friends for A Space for Dialogue

For the last six years, the Hood Museum of Art has given the walls in its entrance lobby to its senior student interns for mini-exhibitions drawn from the museum's collections. There have been thirty-eight of these exhibitions since they were first inaugurated by then-director Derrick Cartwright in 2001. Gathered under the title A Space for Dialogue: Fresh Perspectives on the Permanent Collection from Dartmouth Students, each show has been accompanied by a brochure written by the intern. The subjects of these Space for Dialogue exhibitions have ranged as far and wide as the interns' imaginations and the scope of the Hood's very rich and extensive collections. From Consuming Life: On Ideals of Beauty and Assuming Identity in a Culture of Fear by Paula Bigboy '03 to Picturing Family in the "South": Legacies of the American Civil War by Sophia Hutson '06, these exhibitions have reflected brilliantly the intellectual curiosity and critical thinking of an amazing group of Dartmouth students. Ever since A Space for Dialogue began, the Class of 1948 has been the enthusiastic sponsor of Dartmouth's talented student curators. In 2006, the Hood Museum of Art was recognized for this innovative program by museum studies scholar Janet Marstine, who delivered a paper at an ICOM (International Committee on Museums) college and university conference in Mexico City about the Hood’s special role in foregrounding student curatorial and intellectual work in such a prominent place within the museum.

As part of a strategic plan developed under the leadership of current director Brian Kennedy, the museum has sought to strengthen this program for future interns. The director has worked with the Class of 1948 to identify new patrons for this well-received exhibition series. With the support of Hood Board of Overseers member Hugh Freund, museum benefactor David Lowenstein, and class president Sam Ostrow, the Class of 1967 has signed on to be A Space for Dialogue's next sponsor, along with Bonnie and Rick Reiss, Class of 1966, through their new Educational Access Endowment. Bonnie Reiss is also a member of the Hood board. Individual members of the Class of 1948, who have been very committed to this project, will also continue to support it. There was a celebration of the transfer of the baton from the Class of 1948 to the Class of 1967 and Bonnie and Rick Reiss at the time of the Class of 1967's fortieth reunion on 12 June 2007.

The Friends of Hopkins Center and Hood Museum of Art

For over twenty years the Friends of Hopkins Center and Hood Museum of Art has actively promoted the arts at Dartmouth College and in the surrounding region. The primary focus of its dedicated members has been to support arts education for area children and their families. Each year, the Friends also give a Friendship Fund award to an exceptional area teacher who meaningfully and creatively integrates the arts into his or her curriculum. Funds have been derived from memberships and Friends-sponsored events such as the Big Apple Circus picnic, the Book and Author program, wine tastings, exhibition tours, and the annual Celebration of the Arts dinner and auction. As a result of the remarkable success of the Friends organization and the need for educational and fund raising efforts specific to the unique perspectives and opportunities of the Hopkins Center and Hood Museum of Art, the Friends has been transitioned into two membership programs. The Friends Board of Directors was invaluable in promoting and effecting the change and continues to be engaged with the new programs.

Friendly Adventure Raised Funds

In February, members of the Friends of Hopkins Center and Hood Museum of Art gathered at the museum for an intriguing and eventful fundraiser aptly titled Arctic Adventure. Attendees journeyed through the Hood's permanent collections and special exhibition Thin Ice on a treasure hunt. At the extremely successful auction, it was announced that part of the funds raised would go toward the purchase of a print by Inuit artist Simon Tookoome. The remaining funds will support the many engaging outreach programs at the Hopkins Center and Hood Museum of Art.
