Project #44139 - Museum project

 

MFAH Exhibition Critique Project

 

In this project you will be acting as an amateur museum consultant.  To understand the role of a museum consultant visit the website of consultant, Serrell & Associates.

 

www.serrellassociates.org

 

Now that you know a little bit about what a consultant does, you will visit the Museum of Fine Arts Houston (MFAH) in the role of consultant.  Take pencil, paper, and the consultant worksheets entitled “Framework” with you.  Download the “Framework” from the Serrell website.

Read through the “Framework” before going to the museum.  This “Framework” is what you will be using (and submitting in part for your grade) to guide your visit.  Note:  the “Framework” is used by actual museum consultants and other museum professionals to assist in assessing and improving the experience of museum visitors.  It focuses on issues that have been proven to influence the visitor’s experience in a museum and in specific exhibitions within the museum.    

 

You should begin your visit to the MFAH getting a feel for the museum in general.  Once you’ve become acquainted with the museum you will view their permanent exhibition, Arts of India.  Take notes about your impressions, experiences and questions during your visit.  Refer to the “Framework” to assist in shaping your note taking.  Once you have visited, review your notes and complete the “Framework” worksheets as directed on the worksheets themselves.

 

After completing the “Framework”, write a one page report (essay format including introduction, body and conclusion) as if addressing the MFAH and giving them a synopsis of your findings.  Using your notes and the “Framework” indicate areas in which the museum excelled.  Also, indicate those areas that need improvement.  Remember, consultants are paid for their opinion and museums take their opinions very seriously.  Submit your report with the same level of seriousness! 

 

Upload both your completed “Framework” and one page report to your instructor in Eagle On Line in the place designated.  If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask!
