DePaul Art Museum (DPAM) is a world-class museum located in the heart of Lincoln Park on DePaul University’s campus. Built in 2011, the LEED-certified building was designed by Antunovich Associates. DPAM presents four to six temporary exhibitions per year and houses a permanent collection of more than 3,000 objects with strengths in international modern and contemporary art.
DPAM enriches the university’s commitments to excellence, diversity and social concerns. Through the interdisciplinary lens of art, the museum provides a platform to connect people and advance knowledge in a global society.
The Faculty Forum works to integrate teaching at DePaul Art Museum into courses across campus and build relationships among DPAM staff and faculty from all DePaul colleges. At the first meeting of each year DPAM staff will provide a behind-the-scenes tour of the museum. In addition, DPAM staff will share information about upcoming exhibitions to help inspire the Faculty Forum to identify opportunities for teaching and collaboration. The bulk of the meeting will be discussion-based for DPAM to listen to faculty. Together we will find innovative and exciting ways to foster creativity, critical thinking, and visual literacy as integral parts of the academic experience.
All Faculty Forum members must incorporate DPAM into their teaching once an academic year and attend mandatory meetings twice a year—fall and spring—at DePaul Art Museum. In addition, members will serve as ambassadors for the museum across campus and within their college by providing updates at their faculty college meetings and brining friends to DPAM events and exhibition openings.
All full time and part time DePaul Faculty are eligible.
