Director's Letter

Letter from the Director: Fall 2017

Hood Quarterly, fall 2017

Center for What?

Object-based inquiry might not roll off the tongue, but it perfectly describes the core activity of the Hood. Objects hold myriad stories. Over decades, centuries, and even millennia these stories multiply, expand, and evolve. Through it all, the objects themselves remain, steadfast beacons of individuals, communities, and eras long gone.

A time to dream, a time to plan.

It started with a dream: build a museum with state-of-the-art classrooms, new galleries, and a great façade right on the Dartmouth Green. We dared to imagine spaces activated by students, faculty, and community members engaging with art on a daily basis.
