Class will be held at Phillips Museum. Phillips Collection University of Maryland Center for Art and Knowledge Center Conference Room (CCR) 1600 21st Street, NW Washington, DC 20009
Though this course is intended for upper division students who are majoring in art history, it is open to anyone interested in the museum world. Its principal objective is to introduce students to various facets of museum work and provide guidance concerning the possible ways in which an academic degree in art history can be used for diverse career paths in the museum environment. Most of the sessions will be conducted at the University of Maryland Center for Art and Knowledge, The Phillips Collection, Washington. In addition, we will visit other museums in the Washington D.C. area for meetings with different professionals. Rather than traditional lectures, our meetings are envisioned as active discussions on specific topics. Topics to be discussed include, but are not limited to the following: curatorial work, management and preservation of collections, design and installation of permanent and temporary exhibitions, fundraising, and outreach and educational programs that promote a more meaningful relationship between museums and their audience.
