The museum has a four-point plan for continued programming during the interval of our construction and reinstallation. Join us as we stay engaged on campus and in the community through innovative exhibitions and events.

The Writing's on the Wall

On Saturday, May 21, 2016, we celebrated the expansion with a community-wide kickoff party, transforming the galleries with an exuberant series of collaborative artworks, live music, and dancing.

The fun continues with our ongoing community programming, self-guided tours of public art on campus, and upcoming exhibitions at Hood Downtown.

The Expansion Is Underway

After years of behind-the-scenes planning, the Hood's expansion project is underway.

The Expansion Information Hub

The former museum shop space adjacent to the Hop is now open as our expansion information hub, a physical presence on Dartmouth's campus.
