Learn about the varied ways works of art move from their communities of origin into museum collections in this two-day professional development workshop for teachers. Using case studies from our Arts of Africa collection, provenance researcher Meghan Bill and educator Michael Reback discuss how museums research the histories of works in their care, and demonstrate how these narratives can connect visual art and global history. Develop interdisciplinary strategies for teaching from objects, and learn to use their histories of ownership in the classroom to engage students with issues of cultural exchange and power.
