Community of Learners: Printmaker Matt Brown's Transformative Encounter at the Hood

Hood Quarterly, spring 2013

The Hood’s statement of purpose includes the following: Our mission is to create an ideal learning environment that fosters transformative encounters with works of art. Sometimes transformative experiences take the form of new knowledge or a particular insight. Sometimes they are more far-reaching, as in the case of printmaker Matt Brown, whose career and life work was changed by a vision he received while seated on a bench in one of our galleries.
