Integrate the Haggerty Art Museum into online and in-person classes

Image: Marc Chagall, French, born Belarus, 1887 – 1985, The Burning Bush, 1957, Hand-colored etching, 24 x 18 inches (61 x 45.7 cm), 80.7.27, Gift of Patrick and Beatrice Haggerty, Collection of the Haggerty Museum of Art, Marquette University

As an academic art museum, the Haggerty Museum of Art works with departments across disciplines to integrate its exhibitions and programs into Marquette University’s teaching and learning.  

During the fall 2020 semester, the Haggerty’s second-floor galleries will be converted to teaching galleries exclusively available for student and faculty visits. This will ensure that the museum continues to support Marquette courses while complying with social distancing requirements.  

The works on view will be drawn from the museum’s collection and include subject matters related to social justice, the environment, gender issues, micro/macro views of the world, Old Testament stories, movement, critical thinking, Spanish-speaking cultures and more.  

Whether visiting the museum in a small group as part of a class or stopping in to complete an assignment on their own, students will be able to directly engage with these thought-provoking works of art in a safe and inspiring environment.
