    Pat Guthrie Special Exhibition Teaching Gallery Spring 2023 Application

     

    About the Teaching Gallery

    Each semester, faculty may apply to use a wall in the Pat Guthrie Special Exhibitions Teaching Gallery. 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.

     

    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 2023 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 2023 are as follows:

    • March 10: Deadline for application to use the Teaching Gallery during the Fall 2023 semester. Applications will be reviewed by the UWAM curatorial team. You can preview application questions here.
    • March 27: Accepted applicants will be notified on or before March 27.
    • March 28–April 21: The Curator of Academic Engagement will contact faculty to brainstorm and discuss the artwork that might be a good fit for the class. The Curator will develop a list of artwork and provide cultural and historical context about artwork options when possible. Scheduling a meeting to look at the artwork in person is also encouraged.
    • May 12: Deadline for faculty to select artwork for their Teaching Gallery wall and communicate their selections to the Curator of Academic Engagement.
    • August 2023: Exhibition opens
    • December 2023: Faculty submit responses to a short survey about their experiences using the teaching gallery and help distribute a short survey to students about their experiences at the art museum.

    Apply! The deadline is March 10, 2023
