Hood Museum Of Art

Hood Museum Of Art

The study of art has long been an integral component of the curriculum at DartmouthCollege, originally founded in 1769 in Hanover, New Hampshire. Over the years the College received a variety of objects as gifts from its alumni. Paintings, works on paper, and antiquities were stored and displayed in various buildings located throughout the campus. The purpose of the Hood Museum of Art at DartmouthCollege is to inspire, educate, and collaborate with our academic and broader communities about creativity and imagination through a direct engagement with works of art of historic and cultural significance by making effective use of our collections and staff.

We hope you enjoy our work.
