Baker-Berry Library is the beautiful heart of the Dartmouth College campus. It is now also the site of the green house by the avant garde Chinese artist Wenda Gu. the green house was created as part of the artist’s ongoing global united nations hair monuments project. We noted the exhibit in “A hairy exhibit” and enlisted Roger Kimball to provide a critique based on the exhibit’s press package in “A word from Roger Kimball.”
Early student reviews posted on the anonymous message board Bored at Baker follow Kimball’s appraisal, though with less wit and erudition. Representative comments include “tear down the hair,” “that hair hanging in Baker-Berry is the worst thing ever to happen to our school,” and “I’ve got $10 for whoever takes a scissors to all that hair.”
The exhibit officially debuts today. Our Hanover correspondent takes us on a quick tour of the exhibit in the video above.
