The Art Museum continues the successful teaching gallery model in in the Pat Guthrie Special Exhibitions Teaching Gallery. This semester, the gallery features selections of art from the American West, including 19th and 20th Century artworks, artist explorations of the female form, and a wide-variety of other objects from the permanent collection. The works of art have been selected with faculty from History, Art History, and Gender and Women’s Studies for specific courses. The artwork is available to students throughout the semester for use during the museum’s public hours.

The installation is divided into four sections, one exhibition per wall for each class. However, this year one wall will feature the work from two classes in a cross-disciplinary effort in history and art history. 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.
