All over the world, the vast majority of museum objects are off-view, packed away in storage, but at the RISD Museum the Prints, Drawings, and Photographs (PDP) collection is available for students, faculty and researchers to view up close--even unframed. Participants in this workshop will look closely at an object from the PDP collection, learn about how objects can be accessed for class use or research, and reflect on strategies for incorporating these objects in their teaching. The session will be facilitated by RISD Museum educator Jackie Delamatre (Brown '02) and Britany Salsbury, Andrew W. Mellon Curatorial Fellow in PDP.
