Event Description
What is the latest research being generated at the Spencer Museum of Art on campus? How are art and artistic research gaining a higher profile, with students, faculty, and the public? Join scholar/curator Susan Earle for an in-depth look at what is happening in the field of campus art museums and artistic research today. How are art objects and creativity taking center stage in important conversations? Learn about topics that include recent acquisitions for the permanent collection; how we work with artists, faculty, and the community; our new initiative for collaborative research; and even how we build our display cases. We will move around the museum for this session. Advance registration required. Contact Jessica Beeson at 785.864.1767 or minicollege@ku.edu or visit minicollege.ku.edu.
