Observation, Documentation, and Public Dialogues
The Mills College Art Museum has worked closely with faculty in the School of Education to integrate visual arts practices into student research projects. Working with local video artist Michael Damm, students learned not only the technical aspects of creating a multi-media presentation, but also addressed the process of creating compelling narratives and engaging audiences through visual media.
