Atlanta’s High Museum of Art and Brenau University have entered into a three-year collaboration to share resources and enhance the Gainesville school’s curriculum. The first such partnership for both institutions, it will enable Brenau to draw on the High’s exhibitions, collections, programs and staff expertise.
Beginning in August, Brenau students and faculty will receive free or discounted access to the High’s exhibitions and collections. The museum will offer students internships and special programs. Faculty members will receive annual updates on the High’s long-term plans for exhibitions and programs, so that they can determine how to integrate them into the curriculum.
Says High Director Michael Shapiro: “Just as we’ve experienced great success in our partnerships with fellow museums, we are delighted to expand our affiliations to include educational institutions. We look forward to developing deeper relationships with the educational community to engage a wider audience with great art and programming.”
