Can museums open up our world and forge new possibilities? Yes, they can! Unpack the fascinating evolution of museums in America– money/power/politics. Critique and creatively envision the future of museums from exploring their architecture to art, science and history exhibitions. Enjoy Bay Area field trips, readings, class discussions, and creative projects.
We visit the de Young, the Asian Art Museum, the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, the Contemporary Jewish Museum, the Museum of the African Diaspora, the SF MOMA, the California Historical Society, and the Oakland Museum.
