Museum Interpretation Practices

Graduate Practicum Seminar Course, Rhode Island School of Design & Brown University

with Sarah Ganz Blythe

The course examines current interpretive practices and offers students the opportunity to participate in creating gallery interpretation for the museum context. Questions of material and form; models of attention and perception, the relationship between language and vision; the role of description in interpretation; and what constitutes learning through visual experience will be considered. Throughout the semester students will develop an interpretive practice through a series of workshops, exercises, site visits and critical discussions.
