Exhibition is a vital component of art education, yet most teachers have no formal training or expertise in designing and producing art exhibits. In this book, David Burton offers a comprehensive, hands-on approach with an emphasis on engaging students to develop, implement, and evaluate their artwork. He breaks down the exhibition process into five major phases: theme development, exhibition design, exhibition installation, publicity, and receptions. Each phase is exemplified with cases based on actual teacher experiences. Including a review of the historical development of exhibitions, this accessible volume: emphasizes an active role for students in the exhibition process, exploring the enormous power exhibitions have in influencing learning in visual arts education; describes the concepts and skills students and teachers need in each phase of creating an exhibit; provides supportive case studies and photographs to illustrate exhibition theme, design, and venue; and covers assessment and practical teaching strategies related to exhibition.CASE 6.2: LEASING STUDENT ART Christa Wise (1997), an art teacher in Saugatuck High School, Saugatauk, ...
