The Ruth and Elmer Wellin Museum of Art joins traditional object-based learning with advances in interdisciplinary approaches. With its visible archive and open storage, the museum allows for unprecedented access to a collection of art and artifacts that span millennia and cultures. The Wellin’s state-of-the-art facility offers classroom space, a study center to facilitate access to and research of the collection, and a versatile exhibition space. By bringing the classroom into the museum, the Wellin functions as an exceptional teaching tool, available to students and faculty alike. The museum also serves the broader community, encouraging observation, exploration, and engagement through its presentation of exhibitions on the cutting edge of art, art scholarship, and research in other disciplines.
