Just thought I'd throw in my thoughts on the museum visit series I'm
reading....
I'm currently working on a project that will have each of my humanities
students pick one museum in the U.S., and one outside the country. The
students will "adopt" those museums, and learn everything about them
sharing information with fellow students in those cities.... anyone
interested in participating? Maybe we could have a museum visit day when we
could all exchange information about a recent trip. (It's a high school
freshman class with 18 students.) This is in addition to the contact and
exposure they have to the Columbus Museum of Art here.
I'm just developing the idea and would welcome suggestions and comments.
Other sketchy details as they currently exist: students should use snail
mail and e-mail for the project, students should find a contact person (or
people) in the city (or area) of the museum, and another contact in our
area that has visited the museum -- in addition to contacting the museums
directly.
I do realize visits to museums are highly personal, which is why I'm
trying to give the students a wide variety of these perspectives.
