AH 327 Seminar: Make an Exhibition

(4 Credits)
This course combines the focused, in-depth study of a seminar with the applied learning of a practicum.  Over the semester, students work together to create an exhibition in one of the campus galleries.  In the first half of the course, students learn about the art they are tasked with exhibiting through assigned readings, independent research, field trips, and guest speakers.  They are also introduced to best practices in the curation, collections management, educational programming, marketing, and installation of visual art exhibitions.  Students then use the knowledge and skills they have acquired to collaboratively create an art exhibition on campus.

Prerequisite: 100-level Art History course or instructor’s permission.  200-level Art History course or work experience with the Arcadia University Gallery program (especially, Contemporary Curatorial Practice and/or The Artist and the Exhibition: Gallery Practicum) recommended.
