Study Room

View works of art from the collection with your class or for research purposes in the Study Room. The Study Room provides the opportunity for close examination of works that are not currently on view in the galleries.

Teaching Gallery

Each semester, faculty members work with Museum staff to organize a thematic exhibition of works from the collection in the Teaching Gallery to coordinate with a Washington University course.

Faculty curatorial opportunities

The College of Art Exhibitions Committee issues calls for proposals for exhibitions to be held in the Museum's Garen Gallery. Faculty from the Sam Fox School are eligible to submit proposals for an original exhibition; the committee will also consider proposals to host a traveling exhibition or a collaborative project working with an outside curator. 

The Henry L. and Natalie E. Freund Visiting Resident program is a fellowship open to a practicing artist, architect, or designer currently unaffiliated with the School, nominated by a member of the Sam Fox School faculty.
