Students attend class in the Landay Teaching Gallery.
Using the Teaching Gallery
The Landay Teaching Gallery supports the Museum's teaching mission by providing a dedicated space for study of works of art in the context of the Colby College curriculum. A laboratory for learning, it functions as an exploratory space for close looking, creative exchange, and new discoveries. Artworks currently in storage can be placed in the Teaching Gallery for you and your students to view during a class visit to the Museum. To schedule such a visit, make arrangements through Mirken Curator of Education Lauren Lessing (firstname.lastname@example.org, extension 5609) at least three weeks in advance. A checklist of works to be viewed must then be received by the Curator of Education at least 48 hours prior to your visit so that the works can be retrieved from storage and displayed for your class.
Using the Curricular Galleries
The Museum's Curricular Galleries offer faculty the opportunity to create long-term installations of works from the Museum's collection. Faculty may request that artworks be placed on view in the Curricular Galleries for an entire semester to support their courses. Submit requests to Mirken Curator of Education Lauren Lessing (email@example.com, extention 5609) at least one semester in advance.
