SAVC 102: Ways of Seeing: Art History, Curating, and Museums is an Early College Program in Art History and Curatorial Studies. Ways of Seeing: Art History, Curating and Museums examines selected examples of African American and Western art. Via an online immersive course, students learn the role of curators, are introduced to museums, and engage with the High Museum of Art, art and archival collections in the Atlanta University Center and other significant collections. Diversity of the museum and its staff as well as its changing audiences is explored.
Students prepare to be art historians and/or curators by completing exhibition projects drawn from the High Museum of Art’s collection. The course is taught through a hybrid of synchronous and asynchronous delivery.
Artworks in this collection are selected from Atlanta University Center Robert W. Woodruff Library, Clark Atlanta University Art Museum, Spelman College Museum of Art, ad the High Museum of Art, .
