The Museum encourages University faculty to utilize our exhibitions and collection to enhance curricular goals in all subject areas. The Museum's innovative teaching galleries provide unique object-based study and research opportunities for U.Va. faculty members from a wide-variety of disciplines. Faculty are welcome to hold classes in the galleries and access pieces from the Museum's permanent collection relevant to their field—from the humanities to the sciences. The Museum strives to accommodate faculty needs whenever possible, and is available for course visits before and after, as well as during public open hours. Class visits can include talks by exhibition curators, or they can be facilitated independently by the course instructor. Visits should be scheduled in advance to avoid conflicts with other groups.
For assistance in planning your visit, including information about the collection or upcoming exhibitions, contact academic curator Jordan Love.
For faculty who are already familiar with the works on view and need only to check gallery availability, contact tour coordinator Catherine Jones.
For faculty already familiar with the collection who need specific objects pulled from storage, contact collections manager Jean Lancaster.
