Amherst College Student Taking Notes about a Painting from Mead Collections in the Study Room

If you would like to have art objects pulled to the Mead study room or galleries this spring, please contact Emily Potter-Ndiaye (epotterndiaye@amherst.edu) to discuss the needs of your class.

Depending on the evolving safety requirements, we cannot guarantee all artworks will be able to be made available to students onsite this fall, but we’ll do our best to work with you. High-quality digital surrogates can be shared for remote learners through Google drive.
