Event Description
How does a university art museum teach art history in its galleries? How does the Spencer Museum work with students and faculty? How do we involve both local and international artists in creative research? Join Dr. Susan Earle, curator of European and American art, for an in-depth look at current research and teaching at the Spencer Museum of Art. We will look closely at art of the nineteenth, twentieth, and twenty-first centuries in the Museum's galleries as we consider these topics. We will also discuss the current re-installation of our collection. This class meets in the galleries of the Spencer Museum in front of actual works of art. Course enrollment limited to 50 students.
