Ever wonder what "curation" is or how "curators" make choices and design exhibitions? This was a specially designed workshop for faculty and graduate students to critically explore the types of choices curators make in realizing exhibitions of visual and material object, introduce the practical design process for mounting exhibitions of art and archaeological materials, and result in multiple exhibition proposals. This was an active learning workshop supported by group discussion, group activities, games and short talks engaging the models, methods, media, and skills used in developing, designing and executing curated exhibitions.
