A Beacon of Light

On the bucolic campus of Colby College in Waterville, Maine sits the school’s art museum.  Recently and vastly expanded with a 26,000-foot glass pavilion, it’s intended to be a beacon.

“This metaphor of the lantern, the beacon, was one that we kept going back to. And having this be a place that one was drawn to by the light that it emits and metaphorically by the creative, the artistic illumination that can happen in these spaces,” said Colby College Museum of Art director and chief curator Sharon Corwin.
