Education for Student Curators

Now in its fifth year, the Hands-On Curatorial Program provides an opportunity for high school students to work hands-on with the Coe collection of over 2,200 works of indigenous art from around the world. Through museum visits and weekly sessions, the curators learn how to create their own exhibition from the Coe collection. They select objects, do research, write wall and catalog text, write press releases, design exhibition lay-out and graphics, and interact with our visitors…all skills which prepare them to succeed in any endeavor, from creating art to creating a business.
