JUDGES PRIZES RULES TOURS
UVA ART MUSEUM

 

Group tours led by Museum Education Department docents are available by calling 434-924-7458.

Tours are inquiry-based and involve a variety of activities designed to highlight relationships between the paintings and sculpture designated for this year's contest and writing. During the tour, students and docents engage in discussion relating to connections between art and writing. For example, students may write a poem, "flesh out" characters in a painting and develop diaglogue between them, or discuss similarities and differences between artists' and writers' narrative treatment of various themes. Students are especially encouraged to use rich, descriptive language.

Tours are 45 minutes with an additional 15 minutes for writing, note taking and viewing the rest of the exhibit. Groups will have the opportunity to see many of the works selected for the competition, although there will not be time to discuss all of them.
