The View from Chicago Changing Prospects: The View from Mount Holyoke, the celebrated exhibition currently on view at the Mount Holyoke College Art Museum, continues to attract favorable attention in the media. The October 15 edition of the Chicago Tribune carried a report by Associated Press writer Trudy Tynan that describes some of the one hundred objects that tell the story of Mount Holyoke as a cultural icon, destination, and subject for writers and artists over a period of two centuries. The October 14 edition of the Daily Hampshire Gazette turned its attention to the exhibition as well. Writer Phoebe Mitchell noted that Changing Prospects marks the reopening of the expanded and renovated art museum. Marianne Doezema, Florence Finch Abbott Director of the museum, told Mitchell that the construction project had a major effect on “the look and proportions of the walls and spaces. A number of people have said, ‘Now it really looks like a museum.’ ”

Green Light The Daily Hampshire Gazette made note of MHC’s emphasis on environmentally sustainable practices in its coverage of “Greening the Valley’s Ivory Towers,” an October 7 forum organized by Sustainable Step New England and held at Hampshire College. Thomas Millette, associate professor of geography and director of MHC’s Center for Environmental Literacy, outlined ways in which the College has incorporated sustainable practices and responsible stewardship of the environment. “Our society doesn’t sense the urgency” in addressing the issue, Millette said, “and I think we need to.” Among the Mount Holyoke efforts cited were the competition by residence halls to use the least amount of energy, comprehensive recycling efforts, and the yearlong restoration of Lower Lake. Also attending the forum were representatives of Amherst, Hampshire, and Smith Colleges, and the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.
