Dartmouth to Move Controversial 'Hovey Murals' to Off-Campus Storage
Dartmouth College is moving a set of controversial murals painted in the 1930s to an off-campus storage facility.
The murals - depicting Native Americans as drunk, dumb and highly sexualized - are in a locked basement room of Dartmouth’s main dining hall.
The college formed a group to study what to do with them earlier this year after Native American students complained.
Now, President Phil Hanlon says the murals will be moved to an off-campus storage facility for the school’s Hood Art museum, where they can still be accessed for teaching and research purposes.
