Off the Wall: Informal Discussions About Art—Look, Don’t Touch: How Aspen Defies what We’ve Come to Expect as the “Art Experience”

Art & Lunch Discussion
Time: 12:15pm
Location: Mahaney Center for the Arts, Room 125 and Museum

Madison Hampton ’18, Robert F. Reiff Intern, Middlebury College Museum of Art


We have grown to accept art as something framed and subsequently hung on the pristine white walls of museums and galleries; but Aspen, as a boxed publication printed in 1967, forces us to question not only how we define art, but also how we interact with it. Join Madison Hampton ’18, Robert F. Reiff Curatorial Intern at the Middlebury College Museum of Art, to learn more about this recent acquisition. Enjoy further conversation over a light lunch in the lobby. Sponsored by the Middlebury College Museum of Art and the Committee on the Arts. Lunch is provided. $5 donation suggested; free to College ID cardholders.
