Description
View across the lower level of the Pavilion entrance to the Bowdoin College Museum of Art during the 125th birthday celebration for the Walker Art Building on February 19, 2019. The death of Theophilus Walker in 1890 provided his two nieces the opportunity to memorialize him with the construction of a new art museum on the campus of Bowdoin College. Harriet Sarah and Mary Sophia Walker dedicated the building "to be used solely for art purposes," as reflected in an inscription on the floor of the building's Rotunda. Designed by Charles Follen McKim, the Walker Art Building underwent a major renovation from 2005 to 2007 and continues to serve as a key focus for the arts and for their importance in Bowdoin's liberal arts curriculum. Shown here cutting the building's birthday cake are (left to right): Katy Kline, director of the Museum from 1998 through 2008; Anne Collins Goodyear, co-director; Frank Goodyear, co-director; and Katharine J. Watson, director from 1977 through 1998.
