Get Involved with Art in Public Places

For members of the Middlebury College community who are looking for a way to interact with the process of siting and interpreting works of public art on campus the Committee on Art in Public Places (CAPP) offers an avenue for individuals to make their voices heard.

While the members of the committee are determined mostly by appointment or through ex officio status, on occasion members of the college community are invited as guests to advise on projects with which they have some tangential involvement. In addition, each year in the fall the departments of History of Art and Architecture and Studio Art each elect two student representatives to serve on CAPP.

Members of the college community are encouraged to contact individual members of CAPP to voice opinions, concerns, and questions regarding public art on campus.
