DESCRIPTION

The Hood Museum of Art at Dartmouth College is one of the oldest and largest college museums in the country. The award-winning building designed by Charles Moore and Chad Floyd of Centerbrook Architects was completed in 1985, yet the museum’s collections stretch back to 1772, three years after Dartmouth College was founded.

The permanent collections of the Hood Museum of Art are rich, diverse, and available for the use of both the college and the broader community. Access to works of art is provided through permanent collection displays, the online collections database, special exhibitions, the website, scholarly publications, study storage areas, and programs and activities. Traveling exhibitions, organized by both the Hood and other institutions, bring a broad range of art experiences to visitors.

The purpose of the Hood Museum of Art at Dartmouth College is to inspire, educate, and collaborate with our academic and broader community about creativity and imagination, through direct engagement with works of art of historic and cultural significance, by making effective use of our collections and staff.
