Candida Höfer in Dialogues Across Disciplines

Dialogues Across Disciplines celebrates the ten year anniversary of the Ruth and Elmer Wellin Museum of Art. Featuring a selection of artworks acquired through gifts and purchases over the last decade, the exhibition highlights the museum’s ongoing commitment to building a globally representative collection that is reflective of the academic and cultural richness of Hamilton College. Featuring over 7,000 works of art and artifacts—2,000 of which have been acquired since the Wellin was established in 2012—the Wellin’s collection represents a broad range of cultures, historical periods, artistic practices and movements. As a teaching museum, the Wellin has worked to activate its holdings to engage the curiosity of students, faculty, staff, and the community, and advance interdisciplinary learning by introducing new ideas and perspectives to classroom conversations.
