This show was developed by the students of  Seminar VI: Exhibitions (AETE-412-01), taught by Professor Steven V. Locke in the spring of 2013 and made possible by the Department of Art Education at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design.

Seminar VI: Exhibitions (AETE-412-01): 

This course explores the role and responsibilities of museums and galleries in presenting objects to the public. Coursework examines the history of museums and the rise of art collections for public viewing. Students work on a group project in which they develop an exhibition in conjuntion with a local cultural instituion. In addition to creating artwork for the show, the students focus on currating, insatlling and developing educational materials for the public. The class examines the Looking to Learn gallery education program at MassArt and visits Boston area galleries and museums as part of the course work.
