The museum has closed its galleries and suspended all in-person programming until further notice. Virtual programming continues online!

The Hood Museum of Art at Dartmouth enables and cultivates transformative encounters with works of artistic and cultural significance to advance critical thinking and enrich people's lives.

To realize this purpose for all, we:

  • articulate the character and value of encountering original works of art and material culture;
  • promote engaged learning, creative activity, and meaningful scholarship;
  • create challenging and exploratory interactions with art and artists to spark curiosity and develop fresh insights into the world around us;
  • present open fora for discourse and discovery;
  • collaborate to acquire, catalogue, curate, and preserve our collection;
  • respond to the needs and interests of our audiences; and
  • foster a culture of inclusion.
