Virtual Opening for the Museum’s Fall 2021 Exhibitions

Livestreamed Gallery Talk
Time: 5:30pm
Location: https://bit.ly/MuseumLivestream

Sarah Briggs ’14.5, Jason Vrooman ’03, and María Ramirez ’21

From the comfort of home, get a behind-the-scenes look at the Middlebury College Museum of Art’s Fall 2021 special exhibitions: Art & Protest: Artists as Agents of Social Change and A New Lens: Contemporary Video and Animation. Live from the museum’s galleries, curators will talk about their process, highlight several works, and answer your questions.

Your hosts for the evening will be Museum Director Richard Saunders, A New Lens curator Sarah Briggs ’14.5, and Art & Protest co-curators María Ramirez ’21 and Jason Vrooman ’03.

The event will air live via an embedded Vimeo feed on the Livestream page of the museum’s website where viewers will be able to watch as well as engage with chat and Q&A functions. Advance registration is NOT required. The event will also be simulcast to the museum’s Facebook page, but while we invite and encourage questions and comments for our curators on Facebook—and we will endeavor to interact with them if possible—our primary focus for questions and comments will be on the chat function embedded below the livestream on our website.

We encourage viewers to familiarize themselves in advance with how to access and participate in the chat and Q&A functions.

Questions? Contact Mikki Lane at mlane@middlebury.edu or (802) 443-2309. We look forward to sharing with you on Thursday!
