Honoring a Legacy at Hotchkiss Tremaine Gallery

Rural Intelligence Parties and Openings On Saturday, February 2, Hotchkiss alumnus Raymond McGuire (class of ’75) returned to his former prep school as the guest of honor. He was there for the closing reception of “I Am,” a Tremaine Gallery exhibit featuring works by African-American photographers that spans a half-century. The artwork on display was close to McGuire’s heart for a number of reasons. For starters, he owned it.

An art collector as well as a philanthropist and Citigroup’s global head of corporate and investment banking, McGuire (left, with Hotchkiss head of school Malcolm McKenzie) lent the photography collection to his alma mater at the behest of his friend Pat Redd Johnson, the associate dean of admissions. Terri Moore, who curated the exhibit, said photographs by artists like Ernest Withers, Carrie Mae Weems, and Hank Willis Thomas wowed current Hotchkiss students with their power, activism, and sense of history. On hand for the reception was a crowd that combined past and present Hotchkiss students with faculty, local artists, and Lakeville residents out for an evening of culture.
