Digital Student Curated Exhibitions

The creation of Digital Exhibitions offers students and faculty the opportunity to curate objects and archival documents within a digital space.

Penn Museum invites Penn students and professors to explore their ideas through the development of an online exhibition:

  • in conjunction with their curricula.
  • as an individual project for a class or independent study.
  • as a student group project.

The projects can vary in size and scope, from singular object studies to larger assemblages and museum staff are available to help you to develop or focus your ideas.
