    Pat Guthrie Special Exhibition Teaching Gallery Fall 2024 Application

     

    About the Teaching Gallery

    Faculty may apply to use a wall in the Pat Guthrie Special Exhibitions Teaching Gallery each semester. Up to four accepted applicants work collaboratively with the Curator of Academic Engagement to select artwork from the UW Art Museum’s permanent collection specific to their course content.

    The next available semester for Teaching Gallery use is Fall 2024.

    Why Work with Artwork and Objects?

    Object-based teaching and learning invite inquiry, curiosity, and creative thinking into the student’s educational experience. These skills are tools to prepare our future workforce and leaders, no matter their path, and help enliven the cultural experience in Wyoming.

    We recognize the time and effort that goes into integrating the Teaching Gallery into courses. At the end? of the Fall 2024 semester, a $250 honorarium will be distributed to faculty who have used the teaching gallery.

    How it works

    Teaching Gallery exhibitions remain on view for the duration of the semester. The Teaching Gallery is intended for classes that will require students to visit the museum multiple times throughout the semester and complete an assignment that incorporates themes, ideas, and content related to the works on view. The Curator of Academic Engagement is available to support the integration of artwork into your course. This can include things like:

    • Selection of artwork and objects that fit with your course content.


    • Brainstorming student project(s) and content for the class visit(s).


    • Guided class visit(s) in the museum including, an introduction to looking at art, gallery activities, facilitated discussion, and public presentation opportunities for students.


    • Art studio access and supplies for creative response projects


    • Making art viewing accessible for online/hybrid students

    The timeline and process for planning + implementing a Teaching Gallery exhibition for Fall 2024 are as follows: 

    • April 26, 2024: Deadline for application to use the Teaching Gallery.  Applications will be reviewed by UWAM curatorial team. 
    • TBD: Accepted applicants will be notified.
    • TBD: Curator will be in contact with faculty to brainstorm and talk about artwork that might be a good fit for the class. Curator will develop a list of artworks and provide cultural and historical context about artwork options when possible.  Scheduling a meeting to look at artwork in person is also encouraged.
