Reinstalling the galleries in anticipation of the Museum's 150th anniversary

November 15, 2026 will mark the Mount Holyoke College Art Museum’s 150th anniversary. As we look towards this important milestone and the future beyond, Museum staff are re-envisioning how we display the collection to better reflect our values and mission. The ambitious work of modernizing and reinstalling the permanent collection galleries has already begun and will continue in phases between now and fall 2026. 

The goal of this full-scale reimagining is to broaden, diversify, and deepen the stories we are able to share. To do this, we are taking a chronological and global approach, allowing us to include artworks from a broader range of cultures not previously on view. These new objects, new connections, and new stories will ultimately make the Museum a more welcoming and inclusive space for generations to come.
