The new Robert H. and Blythe Bickel Edwards Center of Art and Dance marks the beginning of a second century of fine arts in Bowdoin’s curriculum. The College first included formal courses in art and music during the 1912-1913 academic year.

Sight & Sound, a new exhibition in the Bowdoin College Library, celebrates this “turn-of-the-century” by taking a look back at how art and music have enriched the learning and cultural life of the College from its beginnings.
