COLLEGE & UNIVERSITY STUDENT BENEFITS

Curators at the Hunter Museum regularly co-teach in our galleries with regional universities and colleges, and we encourage students to become involved in our public education programs, symposia, or volunteer positions. See our listings below, and to discuss a variety of visit and collection study options, contact Adera Causey at universitytours@huntermuseum.org.

GALLERY GUIDE

If you are planning to visit the Hunter, download our special guide, Museum Visiting for College Students, which was created in partnership with Giselle Hasel, Assistant Professor of Art at Southern Adventist University. This guide offers tools for using the museum and assists you as you gain skills in looking and writing about art.


ANNUAL UNDERGRADUATE SYMPOSIUM

Each April, the museum hosts a symposium for undergraduate students on an exhibition-related theme. This year’s symposium is held in conjunction with the exhibition Our America: The Latino Presence in American Art and will feature the theme of Border Crossings. Respondent is Dr. Elissa Weichbrodt, Assistant Professor of Art at Covenant College. To apply, read our Call for Papers here. This program is open and free to the public.


SPECIAL EXHIBITION DOCENT OPPORTUNITIES

The museum occasionally works with college students to become docents for our large exhibitions. More information about opportunities will be listed here when available.
