David E. Little is director and chief curator of the Mead Museum of Art at Amherst College. In collaboration with the Museum’s talented staff, he has led the reimagining of the Mead for a new generation of students. Since his arrival nearly three years ago, David has created a welcoming and dynamic museum; presented rigorous and provocative exhibitions; added global contemporary art to the collection through acquisitions; and built a new classroom in the Mead’s storage space that creates unprecedented access to the Mead’s over 19,000 objects for students and professors. Before arriving at Amherst College, David was curator and head of the Department Photography and New Media at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. He received his B.A. from Bowdoin College; M.A. from Williams College, and Ph.D. from Duke University.
Cascadia Art Museum is proud to host an after-hours private tour of their latest exhibit: 'Drama and Design,’ featuring WPA/Depression Era to the 1950’s works by Yvonne Twining Humber and Blanche Morgan Losey, two influential women painters of their day. Cascadia is a new art museum focused on early art of the Northwest. Lindsey and Carolyn Echelbarger were instrumental in its founding three years ago.
