About the Curatorial Studies Minor

The curatorial studies minor introduces students to the contemporary and historic study of the exhibition, display, preservation and interpretation of art objects. Rooted in hands-on, object-based inquiry, students engage the exhibitions and permanent collections of the Spelman College Museum of Fine Art, the Clark Atlanta University Art Museum, the Spelman College Innovation Lab, and the Robert W. Woodruff Library.
