Membership

The Hood Museum of Art provides crucial support for the visual arts at Dartmouth College and in the Upper Valley region, and arts programming for adults, children, and families. We are able to provide these valuable opportunities free of charge to everyone, every day, because of the generosity and leadership of our members. Thank you!

An Invitation to Join

Thirty years ago, the Hood Museum of Art first opened to the public, and in summer 2016 construction began on our expanded and renovated building. We are pleased to tell you that the enterprise of the museum will continue during the interval of our construction and reinstallation. A key aspect of the Hood’s four-point plan during this period will be an ambitious series of exhibitions featuring contemporary artists from around the world at our new Hood Downtown exhibition space on Main Street in Hanover. It is a truly special time in the evolution of the Hood, as we embark on this most challenging and exciting chapter of our story.

We invite you to be an integral part of that story by becoming a member today.

Choose the Hood membership that’s the best fit for you and enjoy an array of engaging programming and special events.
