Art on Campus

Description

Art on Campus is part of the WonderArts Vermont community enrichment programming, through which WonderArts curates exhibitions on the Sterling College campus in Craftsbury Common, Vermont. Throughout the year, the Admissions Office foyer, the Brown Library, and the Common House each feature five to six exhibitions of regional artwork. These shows, as well as the accompanying artist talks and receptions, are open to the community and have become a celebrated feature of the Sterling College campus.

Purpose

  • Provide an opportunity for local and regional (Vermont, New Hampshire + Maine) artists to exhibit their work in our community
  • Bring artwork to the Sterling College campus to spark inspiration, encourage conversation, highlight Sterling’s values and celebrate creativity
  • Foster community through artist talks and exhibition receptions
  • Support artists and the local economy through art sales
