Faculty members collaborate with museum curators to develop innovative ways of exploring course content through direct engagement with works of art.

In collaboration with museum curators, faculty members use the museum's galleries, print study room, and collection of more than 15,000 objects to explore course content and themes in thought-provoking ways. The Office of Academic Programs creates opportunities for the faculty to develop their approaches to teaching in the museum through one-on-one brainstorming meetings, workshops, and curriculum development grants. Faculty members are given access to the collection for their own research and work with curators to develop exhibition projects.


Support appreciation for original works of art by becoming a museum member.
