ART 427 is offered spring 2022, 9 am - 12:30 pm on Wednesdays.
The course includes several field trips to local galleries and museums. Off campus trips will be scheduled to allow time to return to campus before the end of the class so that classes immediately following are not impacted.
Using active learning techniques the class presents opportunities to learn skills that can be immediately applied to entry level gallery work or museum internships.
Some prerequisites may be waived. Contact instructor at email@example.com with any questions or to request a prerequisite waiver.
This project-based course is designed to help students gain insight and expertise in key components of museum and gallery work (e.g. curating, exhibition design, collection management, and public programming). Students learn and train under the guidance of an instructor experienced and knowledgeable about the art museum world. By the end of the semester students will have gained an invaluable preparatory training for career opportunities with art museums, art galleries and like institutions involved with the public display of historical and cultural material.
Please note, the course is listed as a hybrid this spring, so that if needed we can seamlessly pivot to an online course. For the most part, however, classes will take place at UMBC or off campus institutions in the area.
