We’re incredibly grateful to Collections Intern Jen Villa '21 who is spending her holiday at the @mhcartmuseum cataloging over 200 Japanese Netsuke miniature sculptures. Students, we’d love to know what you are doing for spring break. Tell us about your adventures in the comments below! Happy #internationalwomensday from the @mhcartmuseum! We’re honored to have work by so many incredible women artists in our collection, including this 2009 print “And Women?” by American artist Faith Ringgold (b. 1930). This work exposes the inconsistencies and omissions in America’s most famous founding document. On the right, a portrait of Sojourner Truth is overwritten with the text of her speech Stop by the @mhcartmuseum today for a special lecture given by Eliza Garrison, Professor, History of Art and Architecture at Middlebury College.

Stop by the @mhcartmuseum tomorrow at 4:30 PM for a new event, “Music and Art: Removing our Rose-Colored Glasses.” Inspired by Leonard Bernstein’s “Young People’s Concerts,” Arts and Community Engagement Intern Relyn Myrthil '19 will invite us to experience Walter Williams’s painting “Southern Landscape” in dialogue with Schubert's Piano Trio No. 2 in E flat major, 2nd movement. This event will integrate visual and auditory analysis of the two works of art and will close with a performance by Relyn (violin), Hanna Danziger ’19 (piano), and Evvie Halpert ’19 (cello).
