This signified the collection’s evolution from an embedded resource in the art department to an asset that had broad educational value for the college and the surrounding community and demanded intentionality in its development, care and use. It was the first important step in identifying Smith’s collection as an art museum. As the museum approaches this 100-year anniversary and the college approaches its 150-year anniversary, we have an opportunity to reflect on all that we have accomplished in service of furthering our mission, with an eye on future opportunities. SCMA has grown from a small, 19th-century collection of contemporary American art to a leading educational institution with renovated galleries and refreshed programming spaces, creative partnerships and new academic programs, and a growing roster of curators and staff committed to inspiring the pursuit of our best selves through our expansive collections. We will continue to foster meaningful and memorable experiences with art for students and faculty of Smith College and the other communities that have shaped our identity and service for the last century.
