January 31 – May 16, 2015

Pat Guthrie Special Exhibitions Teaching Gallery

ART 4790 – Arts and Cultures of Africa and Oceana; ART 3002 – Mesoamerican Art & Architecture; ART/ WMST 4780/5780 – History of Women Artists; HIST 4990/5400 – Museum Exhibitions: History & Practice; EDEL 3170 – Art in the Elementary School 

This semester, the Art Museum’s Pat Guthrie Special Exhibitions Teaching Gallery features selections of art from the African, Papua New Guinea, and Mesoamerican collections, a selection of woman artists, Pop art, and a wide-variety of other objects from the permanent collection. The works of art have been selected with faculty from History, Art History, Education, 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. 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.
