Bring Your Class to the Snite
Looking at, thinking about, and sharing ideas about art extend course concepts beyond the classroom. No matter how general or specialized the content of the course, the Snite is committed to making experiences with its collection of world art accessible to all faculty and students.
Faculty members are welcome to lead their own explorations of the Snite for their classes or send students to the museum with class assignments. Snite staff members are available to assist with these self-guided visits or to lead and facilitate a gallery experience for classes. Faculty can also arrange access to see works of art not currently on view through a visit to the study room.
Contact the Curator of Education, Academic Programs at (574) 631-4718 or by email to schedule or to start planning your guided tour, self-guided visit, or visit to the study room.
New Gallery Space Dedicated to Teaching
New this semester, the lower level lobby gallery is densely filled with seemingly unrelated objects where faculty and students have the freedom to engage with works of art that often don't come out of storage. Faculty members can return to particular objects with students several times over the course of the semester, and students can spend time closely looking at objects to prepare for writing assignments or presentations.
Visit this space on the lower level of the Museum to imagine how you might use the space to support your own courses. Applications for using the space (you do not yet need to know which works of art you might use) during the spring semester will open after fall break.
Use Works of Art at the Snite for Scholarship
Whether you need to research an object in more depth or are looking for visual connections, the Snite supports faculty whose own research interests connect to works of art in the museum's collection. Contact the Curator of Education, Academic Programs at (574) 631-4718 or by email for more information.
