Dartmouth College has a distinguished collection of works of public art throughout its campus. Ellsworth Kelly’s stunning Dartmouth Panels(2012)—a major site-specific work consisting of five monochromatic aluminum panels, each painted in a single block of radiant color—were designed for the east façade of the Hopkins Center’s Spaulding Auditorium, facing the Black Family Visual Arts Center.

One of the most renowned art treasures at Dartmouth College is the ambitious mural The Epic of American Civilization, painted by Mexican artist José Clemente Orozco between 1932 and 1934 in the reserve corridor of Baker-Berry Library, now the Orozco Room. The fresco is considered one of the finest examples of mural painting in this country by one of the greatest twentieth-century practitioners of public art.
The Hood Museum of Art houses one of the oldest and largest college collections in the country, with more than 65,000 objects from the Americas, Europe, Africa, Papua New Guinea, Australia, and many more regions of the world.
