It was so wonderful to be able to enter the library without the sign-up and letters and etc required from so many other university libraries. The Orozco mural in the basement is stark and hard, and caused much discussion with my 8 and 10 year...More

We happened to bump into a gentleman who knew everything about the Orozco murals and was generous enough to spare us half an hour of his time. The context and history behind them is incredibly revealing and interesting.

Orozco frescos in the basement are a national treasure. Fully self-guided tour available. Get a new perspective on our country's history in the Americas.

Don't miss the Orosco murals in the 1st floor study area. These were painted in the 1930s when Orosco was a visiting professor at the university.

I went to see Orozco's murals. Saw his and Rivera's work in Mexico so knew what to expect both in the content of the art and the artist's political outlook . The murals are stark and can be disturbing to some. No matter your politics...More

If you have heard about Diego Rivera, you should already know about Jose Clemente Orozco--a fellow muralist. What you may not know--but can discover if you are on the Dartmouth College campus--is that the Baker-Berry Library has a complete mural of his on its walls....More

Baker Library now has copper tops. They had been green for many years. Because of a recent Boston Globe review, many will come here for the Orozco murals. They are an interesting historical piece of art, but my wife found them quite disturbing. I found...More

As with my opinion of the campus, this is also the best of the best Ivy libraries. It's conveniently located in the center of campus and both modern and historic.

When you first see the Baker-Berry Library at Dartmouth College from the Hanover Inn and across the Green, the building, complete with a handsome bell-tower, will look very familiar. You will wonder why, until you think of Independence Hall, Philadelphia! It is almost a replica...More
