Gallery/Museum Practices Minor

Through the offices of the Curator of Art and the Lawton Gallery the Art Discipline offers a Gallery/Museum Practices minor. UWGB is one of only five campuses in the Wisconsin system to offer this minor. The Lawton Gallery and the UWGB Permanent Collection provide the practicum part of the course. The three core courses introduce students to the range of professional methodologies and practices, as well as the conceptual and socio-cultural issues that confront the museum/gallery professional in the execution of their duties.

Students are required to be involved in the design and installation of the semester’s exhibitions. A field trip to Chicago and visits to local cultural institutions also form part of the course program during each semester.
In the final advanced course students are expected to conceptualize and curate an exhibition of their own design in an on or off campus location.

The three courses that form the core of the minor are as follows:

ART-395: Exhibition Development and Design
ART-396: Gallery/Museum Practices, Principles and Policy
ART-495: Advanced Gallery/Museum Practices
