RAAMP Coffee Gathering: Models of Curricular Exhibitions
Tuesday, August 21 at 1:30 PM (EST) RAAMP Coffee Gathering: Models of Curricular Exhibitions.
Curricular exhibitions have the power to engage with the intellectual life of the university while also connecting to the broader public. Tethered to an academic course, these projects can vary widely and be driven by students as well as faculty. Models, strategies, challenges, and outcomes for these projects were discussed.
The discussion was led by Berit Ness, Assistant Curator for Academic Initiatives at the Smart Museum of Art, University of Chicago.
