"There is scarcely a surface in the museum that has not been changed and enhanced," says art museum director Marianne Doezema of the art museum's renovation. The most important modification, she says, is an additional 3,800 square feet of gallery space. Shown above is the renovated Marc Futter Gallery.

Two gala events will light up the last weekend in September as the Mount Holyoke College Art Museum celebrates the official opening of the exhibition Changing Prospects: The View from Mount Holyoke and the dedication of the newly renovated and expanded art building and museum. The opening of Changing Prospects, featuring Pulitzer Prize–winning author Tracy Kidder, will take place Friday, September 27, at 5 pm. A reception will follow at 6:15 pm. The next evening, September 28, at 8 pm, festivities will continue with the dedication of the art building and museum, featuring guest speaker James Cuno, director of the Harvard University Art Museums. Cuno's comments will precede a night of music and dancing with jazz by the Mary Dipaola-Davis Trio. Both events are open to the entire MHC community. In addition, local, civic, and business leaders will attend a special viewing September 23. more>
