Waging Peace: A Curatorial Community Collaboration

Jennifer E. Hamrock, Viki Wylder, Anna Freeman, Marcia Meale


This paper showcases a collaborative community project involving an art museum, local schools, and public community spaces around the theme Waging Peace.  The implementation involved various extensions into curating not only an art exhibition, but included k-12 lessons and art activities, workshops, artist talks, and field trips.  In describing the project, the authors note emerging themes that played an important role both in the impact of the project and participation.
