Summer School: ARTH 101

Join us in the "SO–IL \ WCMA: Building a New Museum" exhibition to learn from our exhibition and collection curators, who will demonstrate how they are approaching the pre-move assessment of the collection in the current space as they think about curating the new building. You will be treated to a behind-the-scenes look at where we’re heading, and we hope you can offer some of your own thoughts as we create the future together!

Collection assessment work in the fall of 2023

It’s time for summer school, WCMA-style!

Join us for a conversation with WCMA collection curators Kevin Murphy and Elizabeth Sandoval, who will demonstrate aspects of the important collection assessment currently under way at WCMA. They will share and discuss four artworks from the collection as they demonstrate their close-looking techniques. During the session, they will touch on issues surrounding the artworks, including provenance, conservation goals, and research opportunities. At 6 p.m., we’ll move outside for a celebratory after-school patio party with cocktails, snacks, and an art-making activity.

Registration is appreciated here but not required.

The program will take place in the upper galleries of WCMA. Visitors can enter through the main museum door and will need to take stairs or an elevator up to the galleries. There is limited parking directly outside the museum on Lawrence Hall Drive but ample parking nearby on public streets and in public lots. Please refer to the map on our Visit page for other parking options.
