Open Classroom

ON VIEW:  Spring 2022

Open Classroom projects align with course material of Purchase College classes while moving beyond the scope of the traditional classroom.

The Spring 2022 Open Classroom will present an exhibition organized by Purchase College Museum + Curatorial Studies (M+) students.

M+ is a track within the Art History MA program that centers the Neuberger Museum of Art in a pedagogical model that systematically programs connections between Art History, the School of Art + Design, and the Neuberger. M+ students work with the Neuberger’s collection, producing original research, exhibitions, and public programming. They do so with an eye to learning how an arts institution functions—training in skills that will prepare them for careers in the field—and also to rethinking the social role of the arts, tying the values of humanistic learning and critical thinking to the importance of engaged citizenship. In concert with Art History faculty and the Neuberger staff, every M+ cohort will imagine what it means to make a Museum Wide Open.
