Two restrooms in the Smith College Museum of Art blur the boundaries between form and function as well as personal and public space. The public restrooms, located on the lower level directly adjacent to the exhibition gallery, are permanent works of art created separately by noted artists Ellen Driscoll and Sandy Skoglund. Driscoll's women's room, titled Catching the Drift, is a serene immersion in an underwater world. Skoglund's men's restroom, Liquid Origins, Fluid Dreams, is a visual blizzard of black and white that Skoglund, a Smith alumna, hopes will intrigue startled visitors into a closer look at the images on each tile.
The Museums Concentration draws on the educational resource of the Smith College Museum of Art's collection of more than 23,000 original works of art, on the expertise of its professional staff, and on the exceptional academic programs of Smith College and the Five Colleges that support learning in this area
