Just because classes are over doesn’t mean that the campus of Dartmouth College is on vacation. The Hood Museum of Art at Dartmouth is open and filled with a number of dynamic, fascinating permanent exhibits. In addition to ongoing displays the Hood Museum of Art is hosting three, current exhibits on display over the summer.
Current exhibits on display at the Hood Museum of Art include:
