Among New Hampshire’s impassive woods and within sight of Dartmouth’s drowsy Green, the country zest of some of Nashville’s finest hits twanged and rang out in the upper level of the Hopkins Center for the Arts on Tuesday evening. Transporting his songs from the glitz of radio hits that made them famous, singer-songwriter Rivers Rutherford ripped and crooned his songs, popularized by country icons Brooks and Dunn. Without the flamboyant pretenses of a groomed superstar, Rutherford struck a small, intimate crowd with a candor and rawness that his pop staples rarely see.

The rotunda will display “Big Brother Watched This Summer: Raise Your Hands,” a multimedia installation by Matt Sturm ’13, from Sept. 19 to Oct. 20.

Imagine hiking for the first time, with a backpack equaling you in weight, being afraid of the wilderness and leaving your home behind.
