Fields of Change: 1960s Vermont

June 29 - November 3, 2019

Bennington Museum’s major exhibition for 2019, Fields of Change: 1960s Vermont explores a complex time that in many ways has come to define Vermont as it is today more than any other historic moment.

This was a period of dramatic, paradigmatic shifts in the social, political, and cultural identity of the Green Mountains.

The exhibition explores these ideas, and the relationship, sometimes tense and sometimes quite friendly, between traditional Vermonters and the progressive new arrivals, through photographs, archival documents, works of art, posters, fashion, hand-made craft objects, and more.
