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.
CAPP is chaired by the Director of the Middlebury College Museum of Art. The core of the committee is comprised of the standing members of the Museum's Collections Committee. In addition, the committee includes the following ex officio members: VP for College Advancement, Chair of the Middlebury College Arts Council, Associate VP for Facilities Planning, the Director of the Arts, the Museum's Exhibitions Designer, the Operations Manager of the Mahaney Center for the Arts, a treasurer and two trustees of the college as designated by the President, two elected student members from the Department of History of Art and Architecture, and two elected student members from the Program in Studio Art.
