The Hood Museum of Art’s Fall Opening Celebration is being held on Saturday, September 18 from 1–4 p.m., featuring “open galleries, button-making, raffles, and live music.” The celebration is open to the public, who are invited to “explore the exhibitions and new object rotations and enjoy a special performance by pop and alternative a cappella group the Dartmouth Sings.” In addition to the opening celebration, the Hood Museum recently acquired ten works of art —including the works of Thorton Dial, Ronald Lockett, Lonnie B. Holley, Mary T. Smith, Mose Tolliver, Purvis Young, Bessie Harvey and Louisiana Bendolph — from Souls Grown Deep Foundation, a foundation and community partnership which promotes works by Black artists from the South. The foundation is dedicated to “supporting their communities by fostering economic empowerment, racial and social justice, and educational advancement." The Hood Museum of Art is located at 6 East Wheelock St., Hanover, New Hampshire. For gallery hours and more information, please visit,
