January 2022 marked the start of the first-ever Middlebury Climate Change Semester program, a unique and much anticipated collaboration between Middlebury College in Vermont, and the Middlebury Institute of International Studies (MIIS) at Monterey. Undergraduate students from Middlebury College have joined graduate students at MIIS to study place-based examples of climate change, environmental history, and environmental justice.
The Middlebury College Museum of Art and the Middlebury Institute’s Committee on Art in Public Places partnered to temporarily move Pre-Columbian pottery on display at the Institute to the College Museum of Art for study in Anthropology courses taught by Professor James Fitzsimmons.
The Middlebury community is encouraged to view the James P. Blair photos in the Samson Reading room on the Monterey campus and to stay tuned for an exhibit featuring the Pre-Columbian pieces at the Middlebury College Museum of Art.
All artists and creatives within the MIIS community are encouraged to submit any forms of visual or performance art to be considered for the MIIS Virtual Art Show, including students, faculty, and staff.
This live-streamed event will be hosted by the MIIS Arts Club, Queers and Allies at MIIS, and the Institute Committee for Art in Public Places.
It is intended to celebrate and promote artists throughout the MIIS community.
The theme for this virtual show will be: Exploring Cultural Identities
Faculty and staff are invited to Monday lunches from 12-1pm PT during the month of April. This is an open session to check-in and share tips on remote work and life during shelter-in-place. Pets and kids welcome!
