“At their heart, every leader is an imaginative thinker and creator. This makes the arts an essential aspect of any educational experience. At Dartmouth, we are committed to this core vision and to engendering a love for exploration and experimentation among our students,” said Dartmouth’s president, Philip J. Hanlon. “Our investments in the Arts District are envisioned to give every Dartmouth student an artistic experience and to use the arts as a window to explore a breadth of subjects and academic fields. The expansion of the Hop is another important chapter in enacting our vision and will offer a wealth of new opportunities for our students and the community well beyond.”
Working alongside Dartmouth’s leadership, Snøhetta and the Architect of Record EYP will transform maker-spaces and reinvigorate the Hop’s innovative spirit through the new expansion.
