Teaching Museum at Beloit College
Wright Museum of Art
A space for experiential learning through a critical engagement with art – one that is visual, tactile, and intellectual.
A Student-Centered Museum
In 1894 the Wright Museum of Art was established as a teaching museum. Continuing in that tradition, we believe that students learn by doing.
In our galleries…
Beloit College students assist in curating many of our exhibits. Students engage in background research and help write the wall texts. They also help design the exhibit layout, frame and hang the artwork, and create marketing and educational materials.
..and behind the scenes.
Beloit College students assist museum staff with caring for the works of art. Responsibilities entrusted to students include: inventory, collections research, mount making, and photography.
The Museum will be CLOSED during Fall Break–
October 16 through 24
