Location: Baltimore Museum of Art
Dates: October 30, 2011–March 25, 2012
The first of four Mellon-funded collaborations between the Program in Museums and Society and a local museum, the Spring 2011 course Paper Museums: Exhibiting Prints at the BMA brought students into the Baltimore Museum of Art to work alongside Associate Curator of Prints, Drawings, and Photographs Rena Hoisington. Through an intensive semester studying the history of printmaking, researching prints from the BMA’s permanent collection, discussing issues and ideas about serialization, and working directly with works of art, students helped select the themes and objects, wrote text, and brainstormed programming for an exhibit of more than 350 prints, many of which have never been exhibited before.
