Faculty Resources

With collections that span millennia, media, and cultures, the Harvard Art Museums are an extraordinary resource for Harvard University. And with the Art Study Center, University Galleries, classrooms, and lecture halls, the museums provide powerful opportunities for faculty and students to consider original works of art as engines that drive intellectual inquiry.

The museums’ facility is, in essence, a series of classrooms. Students are invited to engage with the collections in ways that will enrich and inspire their studies.

The museums’ team of educators, curators, conservators, scientists, and technologists consult with faculty from all disciplines to explore how the collections might support their course goals. The museums also bring together faculty for exhibitions, symposia, workshops, lectures, and seminars that deepen and advance university-wide conversations.
