Life’s a Beach

Middlebury College Museum of Art, Johnson Gallery

Magnum photographer Martin Parr is renowned for capturing people in their own private comfort zones and introducing them, in all their quirky eccentricity, to a global audience. This extensive series of photographs shot on beaches around the world offers an engaging and vivid social commentary about the vast variety of human behavior that can be found anywhere under the sun. This exhibition is organized by the Aperture Foundation, New York. At Middlebury, it is supported by funds from the Christian A. Johnson Memorial Foundation. Free

Passing Through: Portraits of Emerging Adults

Mahaney Center for the Arts, Lower Lobby; Town Hall Theater, Jackson Gallery

Through painted canvasses and “sound portraits,” artist Kate Gridley marks the passage of 17 emerging adults as they come to realize their selves and claim their voices. Passing Through is an installation that uses the images and voices of many characters to expand the notion of portraiture, beyond capturing moments of an individual life to noting psychological presentations of self in a particular time, culture, and place. Sponsored by the Middlebury College Museum of Art, Mahaney Center for the Arts, Director of the Arts, Town Hall Theater, Vermont Community Foundation, and the Growald Family Fund. Free
