Spring and Summer Programs for Teachers

March 7, 2013

We’re looking forward to welcoming Cindy Sherman (and all of her many personas) to the DMA in just a few short weeks.  The exhibition Cindy Sherman opens on March 17th and serves as a retrospective of her work from the 1970s to the present.  Teachers will have an opportunity to spend some one-on-one time with the photographs during our Teacher Workshop on Saturday, March 23rd.  We’ll focus on themes of performance, transformation, and process as we explore the exhibition.  There are still several spaces available in the workshop, and tickets can be purchased online.

March also marks the early registration deadline for our annual Museum Forum for Teachers: Modern and Contemporary Art.  Over the course of this week-long program, teachers spend one full day at each of five different metroplex cultural institutions: the Rachofsky Collection, the Nasher Sculpture Center, the DMA, the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, and the Kimbell Art Museum.  The week focuses on modern and contemporary art in our respective collections and special exhibitions.  Museum Forum is always the highlight of my year, and I’m looking forward to another great session!  This year’s Museum Forum will be held from July 22-26 and is open to secondary teachers from all disciplines.  If you would like to join in on the fun, we are currently accepting applications.  March 29th is our early application deadline–any teachers who apply before that date will receive a 10% discount on their tuition.
