On Friday, April 28, 2017, Dartmouth hosted a topping-out ceremony in recognition of the construction progress to date regarding the expansion and renovation of the Hood Museum of Art. Many of those involved in the project signed the ceremonial beam. Speakers included Interim Vice President for Campus Services Steve Moore, Joe Imelio, project executive for Daniel O'Connell's Sons, Cliff Hosley, the site superintendent, and Hood Director John Stomberg and Deputy Director Juliette Bianco. At 12:45 p.m., the beam was hoisted into place as the barbecue lunch came to an end.
