Museum Education at the Art Institute of Chicago explores the broad history and practice of art education, charting the museum's past, present, and future vision of what museum education can be and do. Drawing from a rich trove of archival, oral, and photographic resources, authors offer a lively account of museum education as an evolving profession, an outlet for aesthetic and political programs, and a crucial element of the Art Institute's public mission from the moment of its founding in 1879. Contributors include Danielle Rice, Director of Program at the Philadelphia Museum of Art; Sylvia Rhor, art historian; Gregory Nosan, Museum Studies Editor; and Robert Eskridge, the Woman's Board Endowed Executive Director of Museum Education at the Art Institute.
