Inaugural Exhibition of the Colby College Art Collection

October 17, 1959 - December 1, 1959

The Inaugural Exhibition of the Colby Art Collection marks the occasion on which many of our important works of art are brought together under one roof for the first time. The opening coincides with the dedication of the Art and Music Center and the first museum of art at Colby. This exhibition may also be considered the culmination of the first stage of growth of an art collection which we hope will continue to develop in the future as it has in the immediate past. Our primary interest in forming this museum is in its relation to the teaching program of the college.
