The Art Museum continues the successful teaching gallery model in the Pat Guthrie Special Exhibitions Teaching Gallery by working closely with faculty from History, Art & Art History, School of Energy Resources, and English.
The courses included this semester are: Energy Resource Management and Development 2500 – Communication Across Topics in Energy; History 1221 – US Since 1865; Art 3002 – Mesoamerican Art & Architecture; English 4640 – Democracy in the Americas.
The artwork is available to students throughout the semester for use during the museum’s public hours and divided into four sections, one wall for each course. While the gallery is designed to meet the needs of the academic community, it is also open to the public in order to demonstrate connections between the Art Museum and teaching across the curriculum, supporting UW’s academic mission.
