Mead Reimagined: Opening Reception

New Look. New Works. New Mead.

On Thursday, Sept. 8, the Mead unveils its renovated main gallery and opens six new exhibitions and installations that offer a fresh perspective on the college's art collection.

This event is free and open to the public.

Central to the grand reopening are architectural and design changes that encourage deep and immediate visitor engagement with several centuries of world art in a range of media. "This reinstallation is a pivotal opportunity to rethink the collection," says David E. Little, Mead director and chief curator, "allowing us to engage students, professors and the public in new ways with art across time and the globe."
