We are expanding! Check out our programming while the museum is closed.

Hood at Home

Our public programming and K-12 educational initiatives continue to thrive on campus.


Students in the Images program create their own sculptures in the Hood's studio following a tour of public art on campus.

K-12 Education

Images and ArtStart, the Hood's multi-visit programs for local schoolchildren, continue to combine art-making in the museum's studio at Wilson Hall, which remains open during the expansion project, and encounters with original works of art. Students may explore outdoor sculpture on Dartmouth's campus, the Orozco murals in Baker-Berry Library, and exhibitions at Hood Downtown starting in the fall of 2016. K-12 educators can also access our online resources for integrating art in the classroom, and can schedule guided tours for individual classes.

Programs and Exhibitions

The Hood continues to host lectures and artist talks as well as special exhibitions on campus. Plans are now underway for a groundbreaking exhibition of sound art (details to follow). In the meantime, pick up a copy of our latest public art brochure from the Expansion Information Hub (in the former museum shop space behind the Hop), or view it on your device for a self-guided tour of outdoor sculpture at Dartmouth.

Hood at Home is part of the museum's 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.
