Recent Acquisitions: Jennifer Steinkamp, Judy Crook 9, 2017

Artist Jennifer Steinkamp’s digital animation Judy Crook 9 introduces images of nature into architectural spaces in a manner that complicates the idea of inside and outside, and built versus natural environments. It takes the viewer through four seasons in one tree’s life—repeated endlessly to simultaneously evoke the cyclical nature of life and the ideal of infinite existence. Steinkamp has been making works of digital art that honor her art teachers over the years.

Welcome to Our New Hood Interns

The Hood’s internship program is continuing throughout the museum’s closure. Last year, Hood interns developed Virtual Space for Dialogue (VSFD) projects in lieu of physical Space for Dialogue exhibitions.

Behind the Scenes at the New Hood Museum of Art

What's in a Brick?

Careful selection of materials is crucial to getting the museum’s new façade exactly right. Architects Tod Williams and Billie Tsien have gone to great lengths to find the perfect combination of bricks and mortar that will speak to the Hood’s immediate neighbors, traditional red-brick Wilson Hall and brick-and-glass modernist Hopkins Center. Williams and Tsien’s vision for a white brick façade will also echo the iconic edifices of nearby Dartmouth Row, sparking a new conversation among the structures along the Green.

What’s in a name?

A lot when that name covers millions and millions of people living in areas that stretch from the deserts of Mexico to the tundra of Nunavut Territories. In six galleries christened the Art of North America, the new Hood will celebrate the wonderful richness, depth, and diversity of the culture and creativity from this continent.

Hood Receives a Grant to Diversify Art Museum Leadership

by Dartmouth's Office of Communications

The award will support a team to focus on Native American art.

The Hood Museum of Art is among the first art museums in the country to receive a newly announced Diversifying Art Museum Leadership Initiative joint grant of $6 million from the Walton Family Foundation and the Ford Foundation. The Hood received a grant in the amount of $313,529. The complete project will be supported through a combination of the award and required matching funds.

Resonant Spaces: Sound Art at Dartmouth

This fall, sound takes over Dartmouth College with large-scale commissions for an exhibition project featuring internationally renowned artists. Resonant Spaces: Sound Art at Dartmouth is the first exhibition of sound art presented by the Hood Museum of Art, and more widely, one of the largest group commissioning projects of sound art to date. It represents a crucial step in the creation of sound art through a diverse set of new, site-specific work located on the Dartmouth College campus, offering visitors a glimpse into the highly varied and imaginative world of sound art.

Center for What?

Object-based inquiry might not roll off the tongue, but it perfectly describes the core activity of the Hood. Objects hold myriad stories. Over decades, centuries, and even millennia these stories multiply, expand, and evolve. Through it all, the objects themselves remain, steadfast beacons of individuals, communities, and eras long gone.
