These lectures will cover the history of collections and collecting from private collectors to contemporary museums and galleries. We will then discuss the Penticton Art Gallery’s collection within these broader contexts. Throughout these six class meetings, the lecturer will tour the class through the gallery’s vault and discuss her work and research into the collection. The lecturer will pull relevant works from the collection for class discussions related to readings. Class members will learn how collection databases function and leave with knowledge of the work that goes on behind-the-scenes in a museum.
