Vanderbilt Fine Arts Gallery: Collection Research and Outreach

About the Project

Using the Fine Arts Gallery collection, fellows will conduct visitor studies, outreach planning, and hands-on research on collection objects. Fellows will collect data regarding community use (current and potential). This includes visitor studies on current exhibitions and surveys of current university course use. After collating and analyzing the results, students will identify potential gallery programming driven by community needs. Fellows will also develop open access online educational resources reflecting some collection strengths. Such educational resources could include, for example, succinct and researched background on objects and how to incorporate them into thematic course units. The Fellows’ work would be added to our web resources for our stakeholders. Maximum 4 fellows
