Du Curatorial Practicum at Clyfford Still Museum

DU Curatorial Practicum

Breaking news about our next works on paper gallery rotation: it will be a completely student-curated display. Students currently enrolled in the University of Denver’s Curatorial Practicum class have been working weekly with our collections staff to choose a theme and select artworks and archival materials to illustrate their ideas. The class is designed to teach students what it really means to curate a museum exhibition by providing them with the opportunity to ACTUALLY curate something. They will be writing all the text panels, choosing artwork placement, and even presenting their ideas to the staff of the Museum before gallery installation in early April.

We’re excited to welcome some student vision into our galleries and can’t wait to see what they come up with. Stay tuned for more details about their experience in the coming months.
