Middlebury in the News

"Vermont's 'Inverted Skyscrapers'—and Their Architects" - Salon.com

Salon.com spent some time with history of art and architecture professor Pieter Broucke getting the low-down on a new photography exhibit. Broucke and Juliette Bianco, curator of Dartmouth’s Hood Museum, are sequentially hosting “Nature Transformed: Edward Burtynsky’s Vermont Quarry Photographs in Context.”  The stunning images show the negative space left in nature by building with stone—“inverted skyscrapers.” The exhibit doesn’t reach Middlebury until February 2013, so whet your artistic appetite with Salon’s cool slide show.
