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.
Every year the Committee on Art in Public Places honors a senior major in the Program in Studio Art for outstanding artistic achievement. The chosen student receives a modest cash prize, and a work from his or her oeuvre is selected to be displayed somewhere on campus for a period of two years.
For 2015 the Committee has chosen to honor Sally Caruso ’15. Sally’s work will be installed this summer in the lower lobby of the Mahaney Center for the Arts.
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.
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.
