Honors Art History Class- CURATING

The WORK of Art: Writing, Curating, Exhibitions, Display (ARTH 2897)
Mondays 4 - 5:40 PM
Dr. Tracy Cooper

Come explore YOUR ideas about what ART does in the world. Have you ever wondered about what goes into putting up an exhibition? Or goes on behind the scenes? Thought
you had some good exhibition materials? Wanted to be the one making those choices—that is—CURATING your own stories? We will go through the ideas and steps
that go into making a show and you will produce a plan and your own catalog on a
theme important to you. Digital project option. Two museum visits.

Do you rock and/or roll? Play an instrument? Sing? PERFORM AT ALL?! We want you!
