Weekend planner — Art: Smith College Museum of Art

Last modified: Wednesday, September 24, 2014

Following a two-year planning process and a summer-long construction period, the Smith College Museum of Art reopens its newly reinstalled permanent collection to the public on Sept. 12. The first refurbishing of the galleries since the museum opened in 2003 will offer visitors “a fresh and inviting look at the museum’s collections spanning from antiquity to the mid-20th century,” says SCMA director Jessica Nicoll.

Galleries have been organized around new themes: “Sacred and Secular” for the second-floor displays of American, ancient and European art, and “Tradition and Transformation” for third-floor galleries featuring African, American and European art after 1800.

Free admission on Friday, 4-8 p.m., is part of the museum’s monthly Second Friday program and includes a hands-on art-making session for ages 4 and up (4 to 6 p.m.) and “Open Eyes,” an informal guided gallery conversation about a particular work of art (6 p.m.). smith.edu/artmuseum
