Public Art on Campus

The Middlebury College campus is home to one of the most important public art collections of any American liberal arts college.

Middlebury’s distinguished campus collection of public art includes 19 works—mostly sculpture—by 19 different artists, many of them nationally or internationally known.

Each work is an accessioned object in the collection of the Middlebury College Museum of Art, and each piece in the collection of public works on campus is installed, maintained, and interpreted by the Committee on Art in Public Places (CAPP), which is chaired by the Director of the Museum.

We encourage you to learn more about the works on campus and the artists who created them, to interact with the collection in meaningful ways, and to engage members of the Committee on Art in Public Places with active dialogue, questions, concerns, and praise.
