Panel Discussion: Drawn to Teaching / Teaching through Drawings: University Art Museum Collections

January 31 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm UTC-5

Since 1832, university art museums in the United States have offered an important opportunity to engage with original artworks. Collections of drawings frequently form the core of such teaching institutions, allowing faculty and students from across the university – far beyond just the art and art history departments – to encounter historic objects. With learning as a central tenet, drawings collections at university art museums are uniquely situated to develop museum audiences and practitioners, and to respond to challenges and concerns in creative or experimental ways. This panel brings together curators from university art collections to discuss their approaches to and responsibilities in collecting, exhibiting, and teaching with drawings.

Moderated by:
Edouard Kopp, John R. Eckel, Jr. Foundation Chief Curator at Menil Drawing Institute, The Menil Collection

Panelists:
Elisa Germán, Lunder Curator of Works on Paper and Whistler Studies, Colby College Museum of Art

Laura M. Giles, Heather and Paul G. Haaga Jr., Class of 1970, Curator of Prints and Drawings, Princeton University Art Museum

Joachim Homann, Maida and George Abrams Curator of Drawings, Harvard University Art Museums

Victoria Sancho Lobis, Sarah Rempel and Herbert S. Rempel ’23 Director, Benton Museum of Art Pomona College

This event is organized by The Drawing Foundation in association with Master Drawings New York 2024.


Registration required. Please note admittance to this event is on a first-come, first-served basis with registration.
