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 acausey@huntermuseum.org

 

MEMBERSHIP

Student Membership is a great value ($15) and allows students unlimited visits to the Hunter for a year. Please select Student on our Support page to access this option.


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, the Hunter invites students to present research and create a dialogue related to the politics of display in the United States. This symposium is in coordination with the museum’s spring exhibition, Once and Again: The Still Lifes of Beth Lipman. You may download our Call for Proposals here. Proposals are due by March 1, 2016 and the symposium will take place on Sunday, April 10, 2016 at 1 p.m.


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.


CAMP VOLUNTEER

Want a fun summer volunteer position that will also give you great experience with museums, art and children? Become a summer art camp counselor. We are looking for college students from all majors who are available at least 15 hours per week during June and July. Counselors have primary responsibility of children ages 4-12 (age changes each week) and work with art instructors to prepare projects, teach in the galleries and lead the children through exercises both art-related and outdoors.
