DePaul Art Museum’s collection and exhibition manager Laura-Caroline Johnson and Faculty Forum co-chair Heather McShane will show you how to use visual thinking strategies (VTS) to become comfortable engaging with art, no matter your academic discipline, and help you incorporate DePaul Art Museum into your courses. We will present various ways to use the museum, while giving you an overview of the collection and upcoming exhibitions at DPAM.

DPAM presents the artworks of those artists and communities historically omitted from the art historical canon. Our growing permanent collection of over 3,500 objects and our exhibitions reflect both the museum and university’s goals around social justice, innovation, and diversity. DPAM’s teaching vision is to open minds and build curiosity for lifelong learning, to be a space that allows for the development of close-looking and critical thinking skills, and to be a resource for faculty and teachers throughout Chicago.
