A major review in Forbes of Roy Lichtenstein: History in the Making, 1948-1960, currently at the Colby College Museum of Art, referenced the show as “an extraordinary early Lichtenstein retrospective.” According to the reviewer, the exhibition, which originated at Colby, is something “every aficionado of Lichtenstein’s Pop paintings should see” and that they should also “read the superlative catalogue.”
Colby’s new Davis Institute for AI was featured on NPR’s national show and podcast Marketplace Tech. During the segment, President Greene said how “in 10 years, my sense is if you’re not in AI in a big way, for most colleges it’s going to be very hard to be relevant.” He also commented that for students, AI won’t be a plus factor. “It’s going to be an absolute expectation,” and that “we need to have a whole cohort of students from different backgrounds and experiences who are really leading AI and not being led by it.”
We at Colby are looking forward to welcoming many of you to Mayflower Hill. In an effort to protect our ability to have families and friends on campus, this year’s Homecoming Weekend will be informal, with only a few organized events that will all be held outside and a request that all guests keep visits outdoors. Buildings will continue to be accessible by Colby card only with the exception of the Colby College Museum of Art, Lunder House, Greene Block + Studios, and the Harold Alfond Athletics and Recreation Center, which are open to visitors with masks required.
