School Year Begins With KDAG Set for New Location

The beginning of this fall semester has marked the first academic year where the Karl Drerup Art Gallery will be housed in the Museum of the White Mountains on Highland Street, slightly past Lamson Library.

Presently, the Museum of the White Mountains is only home to its normal exhibits. On September 26, an alumni show is set to occupy the space. The KDAG has not yet moved to the museum, but has been completely cleared out of its previous location in Draper and Maynard Hall.

Before, Draper and Maynard was known as the nucleus of campus artwork, which included the KDAG. Last spring, the administration released plans to move the gallery to the Museum of the White Mountains. This decision for future transition was met with an amalgamation of optimism, anxiety and frustration.

“I haven’t heard anything specific [about KDAG] yet, but I feel like it’s going to be a good opportunity for students to get their work out there, because a lot of people come through the museum,” said PSU senior and Interdisciplinary Studies major Ke Cawley, who works at the front desk.

Cawley has high hopes for the new hybrid museum/exhibit. “I think we’re going to get more recognition,” she said, “I think more students will come in here, because I think a lot of people, sometimes, don’t realize this is a museum, because it [the building] was a church before.”

Regardless of opinion, KDAG has a new home for the year, and senior art majors will present their final projects there for the first time in the spring.
