Jim Butler, Middlebury Professor of Studio Art


Celebrate with the Friends of the Art Museum as we select a contemporary work of art for the museum at our 52nd Annual Purchase Party.

Join Jim Butler, Middlebury Professor of Studio Art, as he introduces us to three desired works of art and the artists who created them.

Learn about their relevance in the world of contemporary art and importance to teaching art at Middlebury College.

Vote to determine which piece becomes our gift to the permanent collection. This year’s gift will be 100% funded by the Friends of the Art Museum.
