  • 1. MUSE
    Museum University Student Educators
  • 2. Outreach to the University
  • 3. MUSE Program Planning
    Offers a way for students to get involved that requires a shorter time commitment than either an internship or the docent program
    Allows students to learn about art, and think creatively about how to create and market programs that will appeal to other university students
    Programs reflect current exhibitions, and tie together a number of diverse interests and activities, keeping in mind the length and style of the events
    During weekly meetings the MUSE group formulates ideas, carries out research, creates samples, divides up responsibilities, and discusses marketing
    Outside of the weekly meetings the MUSEs conduct research, create posters and game materials, and prepare for presentations
  • 4. MUSE Activities
  • 5. Program Future
    • Reduction in Museum Nights
    events competes with goal
    of expanding programming
    • Friday Night Sites program
    offers a new venue, but the
    success of these evenings is
    still largely undetermined
    • PACE partnership will
    provide additional
    opportunities for programs
    and student involvement
    with the museum collections
  • 6. Future Outreach Initiatives
    PACE Program Partnership
  • 7. Reaching Outside the Museum
  • 8. PACE Program Basics
    Eve and Rebecca will visit the PACE school to provide instruction on the Harn Museum collections and facilitate a related art-making activity
    Students will visit the Harn to tour the exhibitions and continue art-making experience, building on the classroom visit
    While at the museum, PACE students will interact with MUSEs, who will help them work to develop the culminating public event
    MUSEs will act as mentors, providing an example of students close in age that are successful college students, and helping to teach valuable research and presentation skills
    Each PACE student will choose one or two artworks from the collection to research throughout the program, and at the end she will present on that piece during a public event
    During the same event, there will be an exhibition of the artwork created during the program, which will then travel to the PACE school for display
  • 9. PACE Program Basics
    The program will focus on interdisciplinary studies, and the museum staff will work closely with PACE instructors to incorporate learning into the basic school curriculum
    It will help to build in arts education—there is currently no formal arts instruction at the school, although there are opportunities for creative expression
    The PACE partnership will help to develop a lifelong interest in art and museum program attendance
    Timeline: Program will begin in October and run through May, with students getting one classroom visit and one museum visit per month
