AUC Art Collective

The Atlanta University Center Collective for the Study of Art History & Curatorial Studies (AUC Art Collective) is an initiative that, over the course of the next decade and beyond, will position the Atlanta University Center as the leading incubator of African-American museum and art world professionals in the United States and abroad. 

Spelman will build the program, which will enroll students from Morehouse College and Clark Atlanta University desiring degrees art history and curatorial studies. This innovative undergraduate program will offer a dynamic new curriculum that makes use of the Spelman College Museum of Fine Arts, Clark Atlanta University Art Museum, and the strong liberal arts programs on all three campuses.

Scholarships for the Atlanta University Center Collective for the Study of Art History & Curatorial Studies are made possible by generous support from the Alice L. Walton Foundation.
