Description: This course is a continuation of Fine Art 161A. It provides for more extensive understanding of the theory of exhibit display and additional practical experience in all aspects of installation of art exhibitions than in the first course. This course is also designed to examine in detail the functions and operations of art museums and other arts organizations. The course is intended for students planning to pursue a degree or a career in arts administration. Under the guidance of the instructor, students participate in the installation of three exhibitions per semester, taking increasing responsibility with each installation, including overseeing project designs created in the beginning class (ARTF 161A). Students develop and install an exhibit of their own choosing as their final project.
