An opening reception for Playscape: Contemporary Art from the Colby Museum’s Collection will take place from 5-7 p.m. at the Colby College Museum of Art , 5600 Mayflower Hill Drive. Inspired by the 2023-25 Colby College Center for the Arts and Humanities theme of play, and sourced from the Colby Museum’s collection, this exhibition invites you to consider the role of play in contemporary art.
