Arts and Culture


Bowdoin’s museums and performance venues are literally and figuratively central to life at the College. Your gift to Arts and Culture helps fuse arts and culture with other aspects of the experience such as academics and student organizations. Here are some examples of how arts and culture make Bowdoin Bowdoin.

In the Classroom

Students of A. LeRoy Greason Professor of Art Mark Wethli sketched singer-songwriter Dustin Hamann as he performed in class. See their artwork and his performance here:

Museum of Art

The Bowdoin College Museum of Art, which houses one of the most historically significant collections of art of any college museum in the country, worked with Student Activities to host students at an elegant party during the fall semester to see William Wegman’s internationally renowned exhibition, Hello Nature. The exhibit featured more than one hundred works produced over three decades, several of which included his Weimaraner dogs. Who else attended the event? Some local Weimaraners!


In addition, check out this video to eavesdrop on a student-led tour that explains how the museum stays on the cutting edge of arts and culture at Bowdon, and how it frequently doubles as a classroom for faculty and students:

Studzinski Recital Hall

The premier performance space on campus, Studzinski Recital Hall, is connected to Smith Union – an architectural bond that reflects the relationship between the arts and campus life. The video below details the resources available to students at Studzinski and the history of the space; it used to be a swimming pool and now hosts internationally known musicians and NPR programs featuring Bowdoin students.
