Celebrating Twenty Years
Gifts in Honor of the Hood Museum of Art
Temporary Exhibitions, Friends and Cheatham Galleries
The Hood Museum of Art's collections at Dartmouth College, like many other museum collections, are varied and idiosyncratic, and many of its greatest riches stem from the imagination and collecting impulses of individual curators and donors. Celebrating Twenty Years showcases exceptional works of art that have been generously offered by Dartmouth alumni and friends as recent outright and promised gifts to the museum in honor of twenty years of the Hood Museum of Art in the postmodern building designed by Charles Moore and Centerbrook Architects. These important gifts will greatly enhance the museum collections and highlight the tremendous generosity of Dartmouth friends and alumni. In addition, they will expand the museum's ability to provide Dartmouth students and faculty and all visitors to the museum with direct and meaningful encounters with original works of art.
This exhibition is generously funded by gifts to the Hood Museum of Art.
