In 2007 Dartmouth's Hood Museum of Art began a series of exhibitions highlighting their permanent collections with their inaugural collection "American Art at Dartmouth". Excerpts from that show, along with more from their second and current collection "European Art at Dartmouth", are now viewable online. Examples from the American Art show include John Singleton Copley's portrait in pastels of Governor John Wentworth, from 1769, and an Art Nouveau vase from 1901, while some European highlights are Kandinsky's Circling, from 1924, an Albrecht Durer woodcut from 1510, and Jan Davidsz de Heem, Still-Life with Grapes, ca. 1660s. In addition, the Museum's website features video and audio, such as panoramas of exhibition galleries, lectures and gallery talks, and several short videos including "The Hood Museum of Art at Twenty" and "The Construction of the Museum".
