Dartmouth's Hood Museum: a good charity

"The Hood Museum of Art is North America's oldest museum in continuous operation. Dating back to 1772, the museum is owned and operated by Dartmouth College and is connected to the Hopkins Center for the Arts" (source: Wikipedia).

I attended Dartmouth College from 1996-2000 and obtained a multi-disciplinary degree (A.B.) in Cognitive Science, a field which combines psychology, mathematics, linguistics, neurology, computer science, and anthropology. Such an eclectic academic field obviously encourages students to branch out and explore inter-connected intellectual and emotional ideas. I have some lifelong interests in sociology and cultural design (I enjoy collecting movie posters, studying geometry, and reading about Frank Lloyd Wright), so I appreciated going to the Hood Museum at Dartmouth College to explore how the museum's exhibits displayed multi-cultural patterns.

I find sociological interest in Hollywood (USA) movies such as "Short Circuit" (1986) and "Avatar" (2009) which have design appeal.


The Hood Museum is an excellent source of intellectual stimulation and therefore a good candidate for alumni donations.

Are they printing movie posters on hemp/recycled paper yet?

God bless!
