Krannert Art Museum is dedicated to providing resources for teaching and opportunities to integrate art into academic programs at the University of Illinois.

 

Request to see Art from the Collection

Faculty & Teaching Assistants

Did you know you can request access to art for teaching purposes or for your own research? If you or your class would like to see art from the collection, we can help.

Please make requests early, particularly for items in the collection that are not currently on view. The museum will make every effort to respond to requests in a timely manner. Making a request in advance helps the KAM staff accommodate your needs more easily.

If you have questions, please contact Liza Sylvestre, Curator of Academic Programs.

 

University Class Visits & Assignments

In-Person and Virtual

We welcome faculty and teaching assistants to incorporate the museum into their course syllabi. Museum staff are available to work with you to meet your course goals and determine the best approach.

In order to prioritize the health and safety of our visitors and staff, we are offering a range of approaches to engage your class with the museum:

  • Class visit to KAM – Depending on your class size and the galleries you want to visit, it may be possible to arrange for your class to visit KAM as a group.
  • Virtual gallery talk – Museum staff can share the museum with your class through a Zoom video call or other digital platform.
  • Independent class assignment using the museum – You can make an assignment in which your students will need to visit the museum on their own or use our online resources.
