The CU Art Museum provides a laboratory-like environment for engaged teaching and research activities. The museum encourages use of its facility as a resource and teaching tool in which faculty can use museum exhibitions as a learning environment for discussion, observation, and writing/research assignments. During regular hours, faculty may bring their classes into the museum for self-directed tours and visits without appointment. However appointments are appreciated.
All classes must convene at the museum front desk so that a basic orientation to the museum can be provided to the students. For the safety of the artwork, students must leave their backpacks in the coat check/locker area and only pencils may be used for writing, drawing, and note-taking in the galleries.
Groups of 10 or more must schedule their visit in advance by calling Summer Ventis, Visitor Service Liaison at 303-492-1320 or email email@example.com. We take groups of 30 or less at a time for tours, which are free for the present. There is a suggested donation of $5 per person. For school group visits, there must be an adequate number of chaperones per student, which are as follows: Elementary School students (1:5), Middle School students (1:7), and High School students (1:10). Special needs groups also require adequate supervision. We request that special needs groups contact Summer Ventis in advance of their visit.
If an instructor would like to request entry to the museum during hours that the museum is normally closed, an appointment must be made and will only be granted based on availability of museum staff.
To make an appointment for a class visit outside standard museum hours, Summer Ventis, Visitor Service Liaison at 303-492-1320 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Additionally, the Collection Study Center is available by appointment for class visits of up to 25 students or for individual research by students and faculty. Please click here for more information about arranging to visit the Collection Study Center.
