We welcome class meetings in the Benton galleries that engage temporary exhibitions as well as the permanent collection. Faculty may schedule a self-guided visit, or work with museum staff to facilitate discussion and craft related assignments. For sample lesson plans and activities, visit our Instructor Toolkit page.
Use the request form to schedule your class visit, which is required for groups of more than ten people (including self-guided class visits). Advance notice of at least two weeks is recommended to ensure availability of gallery space and personnel. Contact Amanda Douberley, Assistant Curator/Academic Liaison, for more information.
