ART 219 Museum and Curatorial Studies

3 hours 

This course examines the visual and verbal strategies used by museums and art galleries to communicate with the public. The course explores the numerous behind-the-scene decisions and activities that go into the creation of a successful exhibition, including the theoretical conception and practical design of the installation; the preparation of educational materials and programs; and the complex ethical, aesthetic, and economic choices that must be made. Students will gain hands-on curatorial experience through activities connected with John Jay's President's Gallery and the College's new state-of-the-art Shiva Art Gallery.
