Dartmouth College Black Family Visual Arts Center

Dartmouth College has dedicated the 105,000-square-foot Black Family Visual Arts Center (right), by Machado and Silvetti Associates. Along with a new arts plaza (foreground), the visual-arts building creates an arts complex that also includes Wallace K. Harrison’s 1962 Hopkins Center for the Arts (left), which preceded his Lincoln Center in New York, and Charles Moore’s 1985 Hood Museum of Art (center), now in line for a renovation by Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects. The new building houses programs in studio art and film and media studies, as well as faculty offices, and for the first time opens a portion of the campus up to Lebanon Street, a retail thoroughfare on which the campus previously turned its back. The artist Ellsworth Kelly created a series of colorful panels to ornament a side of the Hopkins Center that was originally less prominent. (More photos are here.)
