Committee on Art in Public Places at Middlebury College (CAPP)

 

CAPP has existed since the fall of 1994, when the president and Board of Trustees entrusted it with the exhibition, purchase, and placement of works of art on the campus, apart from the Middlebury College Museum of Art.

1.  Charge of the Committee

The Committee has been charged with achieving the following goals:

Sculpture:The sculpture program has two 1,000-square-foot studio spaces devoted to the practice of making sculpture. Studio One is a woodshop outfitted with all the hand and power tools necessary to the building of projects in wood and similar materials. Studio Two is a dedicated to the fabrication of sculpture in metal, clay, plaster, and other similar materials. It contains all tools necessary for these processes. Both studios are two-story spaces, ample for creating objects at any scale.

The Program in Studio Art is dedicated to teaching liberal arts students to express themselves in the plastic arts through visual media. Our program welcomes all Middlebury students: from those who wish to sample small experiences in studio-art, as well as students making studio-art the central focus of their studies.Our faculty is comprised of distinguished artists devoted to the idea that creativity, imaginative thinking, and personal expression are vitally important in the lives of all people.
