Middlebury College Museum of Art

Museum Thursdays

This year, in addition to our usual hours, the museum will be open most Thursday evenings from 6 to 9pm during the academic year. Museum Thursdays will often feature various types of informal events, from student gallery talks to musical performances to contemplative coloring and artist-led sketching and beyond, and free refreshments will be available (while they last!). Given the less formal nature of Museum Thursdays the schedule will be constantly evolving, so be sure to visit this page often as every week we’ll replace a little more of the artist ipsum (art world jargon filler text - get your own here!) as the series expands. Event suggestions are always welcome and can be emailed to museum@middlebury.edu or tweeted / grammed / messaged to @middartmuseum. And if you’re moved to write your own ipsum filler text (please, no more of that hipster ipsum, though, its a little too whatever) feel free to share it with us via those same channels and we’ll load it up.

All Museum Thursdays events will be held in the museum galleries unless otherwise noted.
