Art on Site at the UAM: Art to the Schools

The museum has a long-term commitment to collaborative projects with the local school system. Art on Site at the UAM and Art to the Schools are two joint museum/school program that sends art education graduate students to K-12 classrooms for special workshops and, in turn, brings the classes to the museum for tours and hands-on workshops.


Art on Site: Boys and Girls Clubs of Long Beach

This program, funded from 1996-1999 by the California Arts Council, is a model partnership that presents workshops, led by museum staff and local artists, to groups at club sites and at the museum. The program has produced bus posters that were mounted on Long Beach Transit buses in 1997; additional bus posters are planned for Fall 1999. In addition, the museum provides art education training for the Boys and Girls Club staff to enhance their own in-house programs.


Zeitlin Lecture Series

Through the generosity of bookseller, poet, and pioneer patron of the arts Jacob Zeitlin (1902-1987), an endowment fund was established to present annual lectures by artists, art historians, and critics. Past Zeitlin Lecturers have included: the late critic Alfred Frankenstein; the late architecture historian and author Reyner Banham; artists David Hockney, Jenny Holzer, George Segal, Robert Irwin, Wayne Thiebaud, and Jonathan Borofsky; architects Michael Graves and Peter Eisenman; and museum director and educator Henry Hopkins.


Graduate Certificate in Museum Studies

Offered jointly with the Art Department, the 30-unit Graduate Certificate of Special Major MA in Museum Studies provides students the opportunity to specialize in professional museum practices in such areas as museum registration, administration, public relations, publications, and curatorial practices.
