The Cunningham Center holds a collection of more than 16,000 works on paper, dating from the fifteenth century to the present. Classes in all disciplines are welcome to view these artworks. The collection is ideal for art instruction as well as for enhancing non-art-related subjects such as language study, history, or social studies. Many instructors have found the experience a welcome addition to their regular curricula and believe that their students benefit from and are inspired by this direct interaction with art. Whatever subject you teach, we strive to make your experience in the Cunningham Center inspiring, instructive, and visually stimulating.
Please call Henriette Kets de Vries at 413.585.2778 for more information or to talk about using the Center for your class.
Glossaries of terms and materials used in printmaking, photography, and drawing are available upon request.
