The Middlebury College Museum of Art Closed While We Acquire a New Sculpture

The Middlebury College Museum of Art Acquires a New Sculpture

On Friday, May 1, 2015 the Middlebury College Museum of Art will be closed to allow for the installation of an important new sculpture in the Boesky Family Entrance Court created by the contemporary Belgian artist Fred Eerdekens (b.1951). The work, titled Some Need is a wall sculpture comprised of manipulated strips of copper wire that extend outward from the wall. When illuminated by bright light the wire creates shadows that can be read as text. Eerdekens’ work has been described as “the interplay between light, materials and language.” It is simultaneously simple yet artful and the eight phrases that comprise Some Need form a sequence of words that reflect on human actions–-both physical and intellectual.

The Museum will resume regular hours on Saturday, May 2. Please come and enjoy the most recent addition to our permanent collection. If you have questions please call the Museum at 443-2291 or 443-2309.

Academic Roundtable – What is Open Access and Why You Should Care About It

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

Please join us on Tuesday, April 14, 2015 in the Center for Teaching, Learning & Research, LIB 225, at 12:15 PM

Middlebury College has just formed an Open Access working group to investigate this question. To kick start that process, we’ve invited Bryn Geffert, the College Librarian for Amherst College, who will lead us through Amherst’s work in this area. He’ll discuss the practical, philosophical, and legal rationale for pursuing an open access resolution; the questions, fears, and aspirations that surfaced during the debate preceding a vote; and Amherst’s other efforts to promote open access.

You can learn more about the Open Access working group at http://go.middlebury.edu/openaccess/.

You can learn more about Amherst’s Open Access policy, by going to:

Open Access FAQ https://www.amherst.edu/library/services/facstaff/openaccessfaq

Open Access Faculty Procedures https://www.amherst.edu/library/services/facstaff/openaccessinstructions

 

Lunch will be served.  To sign up for lunch, email Doreen Bernier, dbernier@middlebury.edu by noon on Monday, April 13, 2015

The Academic Roundtable is co-sponsored by the Center for Teaching, Learning, & Research and the Library.
