January 18–July 6, 2014
Organized in collaboration with the Studio Art Department, this exhibition celebrates the important history and legacy of the Artist-in-Residence Program at Dartmouth College, which began in 1931 when the Guatemalan painter Carlos Sánchez, Class of 1923, was invited back to campus on a year-long fellowship. The exhibition showcases the work of more than eighty artists who have participated in this acclaimed international program since that time, including Charles Burwell, Walker Evans, Louise Fishman, Donald Judd, Magdalene Odundo, José Clemente Orozco, Robert Rauschenberg, Alison Saar, Paul Sample, and Frank Stella, whose presence on campus has undoubtedly enhanced the vitality of the arts at Dartmouth.
August 30–December 21, 2014
This exhibition of seventy-five paintings, sculptures, and photographs is presented in observance of the fiftieth anniversary of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Over the course of a decade, artists addressed the struggle for racial justice in works that were wide ranging in aesthetic approach. The exhibition will highlight the shifts in aesthetic preferences and political perspectives that occurred during the decade through the work of such notable artists as Richard Avedon, Romare Bearden, Elizabeth Catlett, Mark di Suvero, Mel Edwards, Rupert Garcia, Philip Guston, Virginia Jaramillo, Jacob Lawrence, Norman Lewis, Danny Lyon, Marisol, John Outerbridge, Gordon Parks, Noah Purifoy, Robert Rauschenberg, Faith Ringgold, Moneta Sleet Jr., May Stevens, Andy Warhol, and Jack Whitten.
This exhibition was organized by the Brooklyn Museum.

Allan Houser (1914–1994) was a noted American sculptor, painter, and draftsman and one of the major figures in Native American art of the twentieth century. He often drew on his Chiricahua Apache heritage in making sculptures that depicted the Native American people of the Southwest. A versatile artist, he also created modernist abstract sculptures and worked in a variety of media including bronze, stone, and steel. Dartmouth College celebrates the centennial of his birth with an installation of five major sculptural works in the Maffei Arts Plaza and Hood Museum of Art gateway, as well as a fall 2014 exhibition of drawings in the Strauss Gallery, Hopkins Center.
This exhibition was organized by the Hood Museum of Art and was generously supported by Mary Alice Kean Raynolds and David R.W. Raynolds, Class of 1949, and the William B. Jaffe and Evelyn A. Hall Fund.
