Ever wonder how art ends up in a museum?
Want to help select new art for the Pomona Museum collection?

Museum Collecting 101 aka ARHI-047 0.5 credit

THE TYPE OF ART:
We will focus on contemporary artists who address themes of environmental issues in their work and look for work that can be linked to one or more of the elements–Air, Fire, Water, Earth. Work should meet standards for museum collections in terms of care and preservation, and should relate to other works in the collection or to curricular interests.

WHEN:
We will meet at the Museum on 4 Monday evenings probably from 4:00 to 5:30, although we can adjust that depending on schedules. First meeting is Monday September 9. There will be 2 or 3 trips to visit artists’ studios and galleries. These will be arranged to allow the greatest number of the group to attend.

WHERE:
Behind-the-scenes at the Pomona College Museum of Art.

WHAT YOU WILL EXPERIENCE:
The opportunity to meet with museums curators and other staff and an introduction to the museum’s collection. We’ll discuss the criteria curators use to select works of art for a museum collection, review the work of several contemporary artists, see work in studio or gallery, and decide which artist’s work should be purchased for the Pomona College Museum Collection.

HOW DOES IT WORK:
From a list of 10 to 12 artists prepared by museum curators, we ask narrow our focus to 5 or 6 possibilities determined by the class. The class breaks up into teams and each team will be responsible for researching “their” artist and presenting that information to the class. We will arrange opportunities to either visit the artist studio or to see the work in a gallery. Each team will be responsible for selecting one or two works from the artist they’ve chosen and presenting the work as an acquisition proposal. These presentations will be made to the public in an Art after Hours program. After input from museum staff and attendees at the public forum, the CLASS will decide which artwork will be purchased as a permanent collection acquisition. (Of course there is a limit to the funds that are designated for this project so we will work within a budget.) Every class members name will become part of the collection record for that object.

The artwork selected for purchase will receive its first public appearance in the Foyer of the Museum, in the Art in Dialogue program, at the beginning of spring semester. The team responsible for that acquisition will write a brief descriptive wall label for that installation.

TO REGISTER:
This is by permission of instructor. You do NOT have to be an art major.

When you request permission to register tell me your name, year, major, and (briefly) why you would like to participate. Space is limited and participation at all five sessions is required. Priority will be given to Pomona College students. We would like to represent a broad range of class years and majors.

I will grant permissions AFTER registration for all classes closes to give second and third year students an equal opportunity to be included.
