“We are connected by our memories of life at Bennington.” –Brian Pietras ’07
Relive your time at Bennington with the people who were here with you and come back this September 27–29, 2013. The weekend will be packed with performances, screenings, readings, tours of new and renovated spaces, and panels featuring fellow alumni, while there will be plenty of time to spend time with classmates and explore old haunts and the Green Mountains. We look forward to seeing you!

5x7 Alumni Exhibition: What would you do with thirty-five square inches?
A very special Reunion weekend exhibition! All alumni are encouraged to create a drawing, photograph, poem, painting, essay, collage, scientific equation, video, or sculpture on a 5- x 7-inch mat card. The only rules are: make it fit and make work that reveals your passion. Work submitted by August 31 will be included in the weekend’s exhibition.
If you have any questions, please email email@example.com or call 800-598-2979. If you can’t make it to Reunion, you can still participate by sending a submission. 5x7 creations will be exhibited in the Deane Carriage Barn during the opening reception and throughout the weekend. The 5x7 pieces will be sold through the online auction site, BiddingForGood, and all proceeds will directly benefit student scholarships. Any unsold work will be offered to current students or returned by request only.
At the last all-class reunion in 2010, nearly 200 alumni from the classes of 1936 to 2010 submitted 5x7 artwork. View a gallery of the 2010 works here.
