Emmie Donadio Announces her Retirement

After almost twenty-eight years working at the Middlebury College Museum of Art, Emmie Donadio will retire at the beginning of February.  During these years she has worn many hats including assistant director, associate director, chief curator, curator of modern and contemporary art and director of programs and events.  She has played an instrumental role in many of the exhibits organized during these years and actively contributed to the growth in the museum’s permanent collection.  Among her many activities she has overseen student interns, taught Winter Term courses, written and edited exhibit catalogues, given public talks and for the past two years served as co-director of the summer internship program MuseumWorks.

Hers has been a long and distinguished career in service to Middlebury and numerous colleagues have had thoughts and recollections:

Emmie and I often approached an exhibit from very different viewpoints but we always challenged each other and the results were some of our most compelling exhibits—After Eden, 13 Alumni Artists, Confronting History—to name a fewWow, I miss her already.

Emmie is lively and smart and funny, and she has the courage to speak her mind.

Emmie is an institutional memory in her own right! She has a lovely rapport with the faculty, staff, and the public, and will be missed.

I have had the pleasure to work with Emmie on exhibitions, acquisitions, installations, object labels, publications, and most recently the forthcoming handbook of the collection. She also introduced me to many prominent artists and several important scholars, and for all that I am extremely grateful. I will miss the many conversations about the arts we engaged in within the confines of the museum, but I look forward to many more conversations about the arts at Middlebury in more general contexts, at concerts, lectures, and many museum events.

Emmie’s career at Middlebury will be celebrated with a retirement party on Tuesday, January 30 at 4:30 in the lower lobby of the Mahaney Center for the Arts.

MIIS CAPP Launches Three New Photo Exhibits with a Purpose

If you are based at our Monterey campus or visiting, we encourage you to check-out three new exhibits sponsored by the MIIS Committee on Art in Public Places.

The McCone atrium features the work of local photographer, Oliver Klink, and his exhibit on glacier ice melt “55 inches.” Klink’s work has been featured in National Geographic.

Thanks to a grant from PhotoWings, MIIS CAPP was able to continue to explore our connection to the local community with six metallic prints from the latest Middlebury Magazine. These photos are on display in the Holland Center.

The Casa Fuente’s largest classroom, 434, includes three small exhibits featuring the Monterey community including students in action completing an agriculture survey in Salinas as well as photos taken in our beloved Big Sur and on the Monterey Bay.

Learn more about these exhibits and our plans for a student art exhibit on the CAPP Projects Page.

MIIS CAPP is also excited to welcome our Middlebury College colleagues Pieter Broucke and Richard Saunders for a site visit and cross-campus collaboration plan in early 2019 thanks to One Middlebury funding.
