The Arts District

The Hopkins Center is at the core of a vibrant Dartmouth Arts District pulsing right at the heart of campus.

Dartmouth continues its decade-long investment of over $190 million in the arts district, which includes the Hood Museum of Art, redesigned by Tod Williams and Billie Tsien Architects in 2019, and the Black Family Visual Arts Center, completed in 2012 by the design firm Machado Silvetti. The reimagining and expansion of the Hopkins Center is now a cornerstone of The Call to Lead: a campaign for Dartmouth, which is dramatically expanding experiential learning opportunities within the liberal arts educational model.
