(cross-listed with ART 350)
A museum studies course in Visual and Material Culture focused on the practical and narrative aspects of exhibition design. Students will learn from both selected texts and hands-on, applied context, working to mount a cohesive exhibition in Silber Gallery. Students will learn the museum process of borrowing objects from private and institutional collections, the record-keeping and documentation of inventory; the handling of objects and their packing materials; strategies for narrative organization, and the proper methods of installation. Students will have the opportunity to brainstorm and propose programming to support the theme of the exhibition and its relevance to their extended community.
