  Curator Wendy Watson gives a tour to visiting alumnae and friends in the T. Marc Futter Gallery at the Mount Holyoke College Art Museum as part of a gala weekend celebration that marked the official opening of the Changing Prospects exhibition and the newly renovated and expanded art building and museum.

In 1836, Hudson River school painter Thomas Cole made sketches from the summit of Mount Holyoke, the mountain after which the College is named. The resulting painting, View from Mt. Holyoke, Northampton, Massachusetts, after a Thunderstorm (The Oxbow), is considered "the most famous landscape in America," writes Pulitzer Prize-winning author Tracy Kidder. Cole's painting, on loan from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, was the centerpiece of Changing Prospects: The View from Mount Holyoke, an exhibition on display at the Mount Holyoke College Art Museum last fall. Kidder was the featured guest at the show's opening reception, part of a weekend celebration held to mark the reopening of the art building and museum after the completion of a $6-million renovation and expansion project. The first major exhibition in the renovated museum, Changing Prospects brought together approximately one hundred objects to tell the story of Mount Holyoke as a cultural icon, destination, and subject for writers and artists over a period of two centuries. The renovation was a fundraising initiative of the Campaign for Mount Holyoke College.
