Smith College Museum of Art

Elm Street at Bedford Terrace
Northampton, MA
(413) 585-2760
The orientation of the Smith College Museum of Art—one entrance faces Northampton’s busy Elm Street, the other the interior of the campus—is an apt symbol of its dual dedication to the academic community and the community at large, says Margi Caplan, membership and marketing director. In the former case, that means working with faculty from around the Valley to support curriculum and train students in docent work and art conservation; in the latter, it’s the many community events the museum holds, including free Family Days and Second Friday events, which include hands-on art projects for kids and lectures for all ages.
