Virtual Exhibitions

Colby Museum Exhibitions

  • Hew Locke: Here’s the Thing – This is the most comprehensive exhibition to date of work by the London-based artist Hew Locke. Born in Edinburgh, Scotland, in 1959, but raised in Guyana—a British colony until 1970—Locke often sailed between the UK and South America during his childhood. Across a wide range of media, he considers the maritime vectors of mercantilism, colonialism, post-colonialism, migration, and diaspora.
  • Senior Exhibition 2020 – Colby College’s virtual Senior Show commemorates the work of 2020 graduating studio art majors. In a typical year these works would be displayed in the Davis Gallery at the Colby Museum, but this year has been anything but typical. Congratulations, class of 2020! Your hard work and creativity inspire us all.

Academic Exhibitions

These online exhibitions were developed from research conducted by faculty and students at Colby College. Many of these exhibitions link to physical exhibitions and were assignments in specific courses. These exhibitions provide an opportunity to consider objects in the Colby College Museum of Art in the context of other collections.

  • SomeWHERE – Visions from Chinese and Taiwanese Artists in Maine
