Zoom meeting

Teachers of all disciplines and grade levels explore how art across cultures may confer power and prestige, facilitate trade and exchange, or effect bodily, social, or spiritual transformation through a new, experimental exhibition at the Johnson Museum, Powering Exchange: Teaching Objects in Transformation, curated by Andrea Murray, Lead Educator and Pre-K–12 Curriculum Development Specialist. Murray’s years of experience working with educators and in classrooms throughout the region informed her selections of artworks and thematic approach.

Andrea Murray and fellow Johnson Museum presenters Maryterese Pasquale-Bowen, Carol Hockett, and Elizabeth Yearsley will host a free professional development series to experiment with approaches to teaching and learning with these artworks. Readings will be sent out on the Monday before the session to inform our discussion. Email Carol Hockett at cih2@cornell.edu with questions or for more information.

In this session, Power of Art—Art of Power, we will explore the theme of power through works of art drawn from the Museum’s permanent collection in Powering Exchange. All artworks were selected for their capacity to engage, excite, and provoke discussions among students and teachers from any discipline. Join educators from all grade levels to discover new ideas that can enrich our understanding of these artworks, while providing avenues for learning about the cultures from which they come.

This session will be held virtually. Click here to register via TST BOCES Professional Learning.
