How to Experience Public Art this Fall
A student's perspective on five ways you can enjoy public art on campus right now.
WANT AN EXCUSE TO GET OUTSIDE?
Not too hot and not too cold, autumn is the perfect season to get outside and explore Hanover. Download this walking tour and meander around the College on the Hill. Can you find any artworks that you did not notice before? (Don't miss the museum's newest public art installation, Wide Babelki Bowl by Ursula von Rydingsvard, located near Rollins Chapel!)
GRAB YOUR CAMERA!
The foliage alone might make fall the most beautiful time of the year in the Upper Valley. Use a smartphone or camera to take photographs of public art on campus. Think about how your photo might look from an unexpected angle or at a different time of day. Share your favorites by tagging @hoodmuseum and using #hoodmuseum on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter.
LOOKING FOR A NEW PLAYLIST?
Overplayed all of our favorite songs and ready to add some new ones to your music library? Check out the museum's curated playlist which pairs music with select outdoor sculptures. Think you want to make your own playlist? Email us to learn how you can participate in this student-run initiative.
CHALLENGE YOUR FRIENDS!
If you haven't tried an escape room challenge yet, this is your chance. The museum has just launched its second escape room challenge, which is based on outdoor sculpture. Click here to learn more about this virtual game and see how you and your friends can compete to win.
Collect your favorite art supplies and try your hand at depicting some of the public art on campus. Use paints and pencils, make a collage, or draw with your preferred digital software. Share your artwork with us by tagging @hoodmuseum and using #hoodmuseum on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter.
