Middlebury, VT—As a consequence of the recent period of extended sub-zero weather followed by a thaw, the Middlebury College Museum of Art has experienced an unusual level of condensation in its stair towers. To enable the museum to properly address this issue, it is necessary to delay the opening of the spring exhibit, Power & Piety: Spanish Colonial Art. The exhibit opening has been rescheduled for Friday, March 2 at 4:30 p.m.

Several events planned in association with this exhibit are presently being rescheduled and details will be announced when they are complete.

The first floor of the museum will be open regularly scheduled hours and visitors are encouraged to enjoy the museum’s permanent collection galleries, as well as the special exhibit, 10 Years: The Cameron Print Project, which is comprised of an extraordinary group of prints created by visiting artists working with Professor Hedya Klein and her students during the past decade.
