Throughout the 2017–2018 academic year, the Ruth and Elmer Wellin Museum of Art at Hamilton College is celebrating its five year anniversary as one of New York’s newest innovative cultural institutions, serving Hamilton’s students and faculty, as well as regional and national audiences.
Since opening in October 2012, the Wellin Museum of Art has hosted 22 exhibitions and welcomed nearly 60,000 visitors. Through its exhibitions, collection, public programs, and educational outreach, the museum promotes interdisciplinary approaches and the cross-fertilization of concepts and ideas vital to a liberal arts education.
The museum works with emerging and established artists and collaborates with Hamilton students and faculty to develop programming exploring a wide range of themes and inspire a dialogue about the arts that is global in its scope.
Exhibiting artists include Margarita Cabrera, Frédéric Brenner, Wendy Ewald, Fazal Sheikh, and Stephen Shore. In addition to the 6,200-square-foot exhibition space, the museum also features a soaring, visible archive and open storage, allowing for unprecedented access to a collection of over 6,000 works of cross-cultural art and artifacts that span millennia.
