Hidden Away: 20th and 21st Century Works from the Permanent Collection

June 25–August 11, 2013

It is the unusual museum that can exhibit all or even most of its collection on a regular basis. Some works are rarely on view because they are light-sensitive and can only be shown for limited periods of time. But in many cases museums, such as ours, simply do not have sufficient space to exhibit all the amazing works in the collection on an ongoing basis. So this summer, come see some of the Middlebury College Museum of Art’s treasures that are rarely on view. These include a mobile by Alexander Calder; sculptures by William Zorach, William King, and Harry Bertoia; glass by Louis Comfort Tiffany and Dale Chihuly; watercolors by George Grosz and Luigi Lucioni; and oil paintings by Arthur Davies, Edwin Dickinson, Ivan Albright, John Sloan, Grant Wood, Alice Neel, and Rackstraw Downes.
