The article discusses the Hood’s intentional focus on its role as a “teaching museum” to the future building expansion and the positive impression Taylor has made on his colleagues at Dartmouth and in the wider community.

The Valley News reports that Taylor wants “not only to ‘get students here to understand this is their museum,’ but to encourage greater public awareness that the museum is there for all. The day before being interviewed, he said, he’d spoken to some people in Rochester, Vt., who had asked him whether they too could visit the museum. “Yes!” he told them.”
