August 5 -10 seminar with Rika Burnham in Chicago
This one-week summer seminar is designed for art museum educators who have
a special interest in gallery teaching. TIME is hosted by the School of
the Art Institute in cooperation with the Art Institute of Chicago and will
be held August 510, 2012.
The TIME seminar proposes that a dialogical model of gallery teaching
provides unrivaled opportunities for people to see deeply and to think
together about works of art. TIME embodies the belief that good gallery
teaching helps visitors to find uniquely valuable pathways to the
experience and understanding of a museum¹s collections and special
TIME includes the study of works of art in the Art Institute of Chicago,
discussion of the theory and practice of gallery teaching, a survey of the
literature and the history of teaching in American museums, and several
guest speakers. TIME is led by Rika Burnham, Head of Education at The Frick
Collection, and Elliott Kai-Kee, Education Specialist in charge of gallery
teaching at the J. Paul Getty Museum.
All mid-career museum educators with a demonstrated commitment to gallery
teaching are invited to apply. The* *deadline for applications is June 1,
2012. The application process is competitive: 15 candidates will be invited
to attend from the applicant pool. TIME is generously supported by the
