The Mead Art Museum connects people, art, and curricula. Using the museum and its collections as sites and sparks for learning across disciplines and topics, Mead educators work with faculty to develop assignments, projects, and programs that deepen learning objectives. Our portfolio of projects ranges from one-time visits to semester-long course partnerships, and we work well with a range of disciplines, from American Studies to Chemistry to History of Art, and more.
