Hood Museum of Art

Whether it takes the shape of Assyrian reliefs or an oil painting, a steel-beam sculpture or a single-channel video on a plasma screen, art tells a story. The Hood Museum of Art has nearly 70,000 works of art that span centuries of visual storytelling—stories about people and places; stories about life today and yesterday.

The Hood shares these stories with the Dartmouth and local communities through exhibitions, programs, and events that invite visitors to see art in a new light, to enjoy art from a new perspective. And to return again and again to hear more stories.

In addition to a changing schedule of exhibitions and innovative programs for visitors of all ages, the museum offers a wide variety of interpretive tools in its galleries and study-storage center. Learn more about learning opportunities at the Hood Museum of Art…
