Jump past Instagram images to the footer. Say hello to Erin Hancock '20! An Almara History in Museums Intern, Erin has spent this J-term researching the Skinner Museum’s collection of textiles & textile manufacturing tools. Today, Erin worked alongside @mhcartmuseum staff Jackie Finnegan ‘08 and Aaron Miller to reconstruct an 18th century loom. We can’t wait to get it up and running again! #skinnermuseum #weaving #internship Please note that the @mhcartmuseum will be closed for the holidays beginning on December 18, 2018 and will reopen on January 15, 2019. We look forward to seeing you in the new year! Image: Kikugawa Eizan (Japanese, 1787–1867), Happy birthday to artist Minerva  Chapman (1858–1947)! Chapman studied at Mount Holyoke from 1876–1878 and went on to study painting at the Art Institute of Chicago. She became a highly successful painter of portrait miniatures and was one of the first American women to be elected a member of the esteemed Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts. While better known for her watercolor portraits, Chapman employs oil paint in this 1913 work, titled “Woman Polishing Pots,” allowing her to experiment with light & abstract forms. #artistbirthday @mhcartmuseum We’ve received some great visits from @mtholyoke classes in the past few weeks! Seen here are students in Terre Vandale’s “Sight-Specific Dance” class responding to @mhcartmuseum artworks through movement. #movementbasedlearning #objectbasedlearning #teachingwithart #classes If you are looking for a way to spend time with family or loved ones this holiday season, the @mhcartmuseum has an idea for you!
