We are expanding! Check out our programming while the museum is closed.

EXPANSION UPDATE: Topping-Out Ceremony

On Friday, April 28, 2017, Dartmouth hosted a topping-out ceremony in recognition of the construction progress to date regarding the expansion and renovation of the Hood Museum of Art. Many of those involved in the project signed the ceremonial beam. Speakers included Interim Vice President for Campus Services Steve Moore, Joe Imelio, project executive for Daniel O'Connell's Sons, Cliff Hosley, the site superintendent, and Hood Director John Stomberg and Deputy Director Juliette Bianco. At 12:45 p.m., the beam was hoisted into place as the barbecue lunch came to an end.

Expansion Update: Steel

A behind-the-scenes look at the museum's expansion.

One year after our galleries closed to the public, steel beams started going up. These images document the progress made over the course of five weeks in early spring 2017.

Hood Signs Letter of Support for Arts Funding

Northeast Small College Art Museum Association (NESCAMA) Statement on Funding for the Arts

We, the directors of the Northeast Small College Art Museum Association (NESCAMA), are deeply concerned about potential budget cuts that threaten funding so vital to us and to the good work that arts organizations do throughout the nation. We must continue to hold the line and to promote the arts energetically through the support of the National Endowment for the Humanities, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

Letter from the Director: Winter 2017

Hood Quarterly, winter 2017
John Stomberg, Virginia Rice Kelsey 1961s Director

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.
