The University of California Institute for Research in the Arts supports embedded arts research through critical exchange

Upcoming Nelson Gallery Events

The 2012-13 academic year is an exciting time in the development of the new Jan Shrem and Maria Manetti Shrem Museum of Art. By the end of this year, the museum will have selected an architectural/contractor team and have a draft design. As the building takes physical form, the university will also develop the museum mission and the exhibition and education programming it supports.

Now is the time to be involved and help shape this important community resource. The museum needs to hear from all of campus and civic communities. Rachel Teagle, the museum director, has said the forums are a place for this feedback to happen. “We want to hear ideas and questions as well as how people think the museum can best serve them, the university and the region,” she said.

Each forum will begin with a short presentation on the museum development process followed by open discussion. How can the museum serve community needs that are currently unmet? What are the strengths of our city that the museum may support?
