Teaching in the Galleries
The Galleries provide a space for faculty to extend their classrooms by connecting curricula to the cycling exhibitions and objects in the Permanent Collection. Sessions in the gallery are tailored to meet individual learning objectives and can be designed to promote close-looking, develop object-based research skills, offer interdisciplinary, historical or cultural context, and/or start a conversation on contemporary politics or social climate. Additionally, with advance notice, objects from the Permanent Collection can be pulled from storage for class visits or research purposes. For more detailed information about the benefits of experiential learning in the galleries or to see some examples of past collaborations for inspiration, please contact Liz Canter.
