The Mead Art Museum connects people, art, and curricula. Using the museum as a site for learning across disciplines and topics, Mead educators work with faculty to develop assignments, projects, and programs to deepen learning objectives. Our portfolio of projects ranges from one-time visits to entire course partnerships, and we work well with a range of disciplines, from American Studies to Chemistry to History of Art. Due to the pandemic, the Mead has limited open hours for members of the Amherst College community only, until further notice.
