This course explores the multifaceted aspects of an art museum, focusing on a case study: the Portland Art Museum (PAM). After a fieldtrip to Portland, students will approach the museum from the perspective of the visitor and will make sense of this experience by illustrating the different sets of knowledge involved in the creation of an art museum linked to the academic disciplines of the College of Design: urban planning, architecture, historic preservation, landscape architecture, product design, art, art history, and arts management. This class is also an opportunity to learn about the range of programs offered by The College of Design.
