Museum Studies Students Present Final Exhibitions

Exhibition Dates: April 30-May 4, 2012

Exhibition location: Henry Whittemore Library (Lower Reading Room)

Contact: Professor Erika Schneider at eschneider@framingham.edu

 

For the first time, students in Art History Professor Erika Schneider’s biannual Museum Studies course will exhibit their final projects to the public. On Tuesday, May 1 from 4-5 p.m. in the Henry Whittemore Library (LM), the class will host an opening reception for their exhibits.  The nine students will present their individual museum exhibitions to culminate the semester’s exploration of museum research. Students represent the Art & Music, History, and Consumer Sciences departments.  Guests will see a wide variety of exhibit topics such as trench warfare, instant cameras, Harry Potter, and Monopoly. Refreshments will be served.

Museum Studies is an interdisciplinary minor consisting of courses in anthropology, art history, history, and fashion.  This interdepartmental minor requires that students take a minimum of five courses outside of their major department. Students are strongly encouraged to complete a museum internship to complement the minor. To complete the minor, four of the five courses must be taken outside the student’s major department.
