Dillard Sessions

During the 2021 spring semester, the Weatherspoon Art Museum hosted MFA students enrolled in the class “Contemporary Art and/as Democratic Engagement” for a session in the museum’s Dillard teaching gallery, available by appointment for faculty teaching with the museum’s collection. These sessions allow classes access to objects not currently on view in the galleries and enable students to develop close-looking skills through direct engagement with the original works of art. This Dillard session was particularly exciting because Professor Nicole Scalissi designed the class so that each student could request a work for the group to view and discuss, empowering the students to direct the conversation. If you are a UNC Greensboro faculty member and would like to learn more about Dillard sessions, contact Alice Culclasure, assistant registrar, anculcla@uncg.edu.
