A Century of War and Survival

A two-semester training course for museum studies graduate students and veteran curator-artists, followed by their collaborative facilitation of public discussion programs on veterans’ artistic responses to war experiences.

The Museum and Exhibition Studies Program at the University of Illinois at Chicago (MUSE UIC), in partnership with the National Veterans Art Museum (NVAM), proposes to conduct a Dialogue on the Experience of War program that incorporates academic study, curation, and focus group discussions, culminating in facilitated discussion forums at the National Veterans Art Museum’s first ever Triennial and Veteran Art Summit in Chicago, Illinois. Through this partnership, MUSE UIC and NVAM will formulate a comprehensive preparatory two-semester course at UIC that will engage and train veteran artists/curators from a multitude of artistic mediums, preparing these facilitators to lead discussion forums focused on wars from WWI to the present, while MUSE course participants receive rich practical experience with cultural programming and curation.
