This course offers an inside look at how art museums function, as well as the opportunities and challenges they face. Through conversations with museum professionals, tours of the Utah Museum of Fine Arts (UMFA), and attendance of local events, students will learn how our university and state art museum approaches education, curation, collecting, and community engagement. By discussing current social justice issues and observing the institution through a critical lens, students will explore ways that art museums can be more inclusive, accessible, and relevant to the public. Learning in a collaborative experiential environment, students will help transform how the UMFA connects with, engages, and learns from the diverse communities it serves.
