The HOOD Museum is Open!
The HOOD Museum invites all to explore art from cultures across the globe in the new and renovated galleries of the museum. From Asia to Europe and from the Americas to the South Pacific, these dynamic spaces feature favorite and familiar works and introduce new and unexpected ones. Drawn entirely from the museum’s collections, this presentation—and a year-long roster of programs—shares our aspiration that direct engagement with art and material culture will inspire creativity and critical thinking as well as offer opportunities for dialogue and unexpected connections across disciplines.
Along with object labels, each gallery offers special labels on the themes of object biography, society and culture, materiality, and objects in dialogue. We hope all will find these installations both engaging and inspiring.
The Hood Museum of Art is in Hanover, New Hampshire is owned and operated by Dartmouth College. The original building, designed by Charles Willard Moore and Chad Floyd, opened in the fall of 1985. The recently renovated museum opened January 26, 2019. It houses both permanent collections and visiting exhibitions.
