Stop by the Mead to find new connections among works on view with student museum educators. Each week we’ll focus on different themes that bring student interests to the fore. Come back every week for a fresh perspective on the works on view in our galleries. Be sure to check our website and Facebook page for updates on weekly topics. All programs are free and open to the public!
All are invited to the Mead for an afternoon of art and experimentation. We’ll explore questions about the universe as we delve into Dimensionism: Modern Art in the Age of Einstein, the Mead’s exhibition about the connection between art and science. This program is offered with support from the Arts at Amherst Initiative.
Visit the Mezzanine Gallery in Frost Library to view Between the Imagined and Seen: The Hand-Pulled Prints of Betsey Garand and Microscope Images of Caroline Goutte, on exhibit from March 4 to Aug. 30. This exhibition is sponsored by the Arts at Amherst Initiative
Professor Caroline Goutte is chair of the Department of Biology and a member of the Program in Biochemistry and Biophysics at Amherst College. Betsey Garand is senior resident artist in the Department of Art and the History of Art at Amherst College.
