Friends of Art, the museum's membership organization, was established in 1931 to "vitalize" the artistic life of the college." Over the ensuing decades, contributions have provided crucial funding for exhibitions and related programming. We deeply value the loyalty of our present members and invite the participation of new ones.

Between 1879 and 1909, Italian alpinist and photographer Vittorio Sella (1859-1943) made spectacular images of the mountains and inhabitants of the most remote regions of Europe, Asia, Africa, and Alaska. This exhibition, organized by the museum's curator Wendy Watson and mountaineer Paul Kallmes, includes more than 120 of his orginal photographs, including mammoth panoramas of the Himalayas, the Caucasus, and the Alps. The exhibition is accompanied by an award-winning book published by Aperture. The exhibition will travel to the New York School of Interior Design (12 April-27 May) and the Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies, Banff, Canada (14 September-26 November).
4 January-9 March 2000
Remarkable views of the American wilderness and urban fabric are included in this exhibition of panoramic photographs by Michael A. Smith. Using an 8 by 20-inch camera, Smith recorded landscapes ranging from the Canyon de Chelly and the Snake River to downtown New Orleans. These remarkable images support his theory that it is "how" one sees, rather than "what" one sees that makes any photograph interesting.
8 April-28 May 2000
Through the work of emerging, mid-career, and established artists from the United States and Mexico, this exhibition will investigate the role of color in post-formal sculpture to determine the extent to which it transcends the expressive, compositional, and decorative effects of earlier polychrome sculpture through meaning, reference, and a renewed critical interest in beauty.
8 April-28 May 2000
Works of art from the permanent collection, including new acquisitions, are featured in this show organized by John Varriano, Idella Plimpton Kendall Professor of Art, with students in his seminar on Renaissance and Baroque drawings. The seminar and exhibition will consider issues of technique, function, expressive effect, and audience as essential elements of a medium that was central to studio practice in both northern and southern Europe during the fifteenth to eighteenth centuries.
The Mount Holyoke College Art Museum will close after May 28 for renovation and expansion.
The museum offices will remain open during the project.
Anticipated reopening date is February, 2002.
