Student Advisory Group

The Snite Museum of Art Student Advisory Group is looking for new members for the 2017-2018 academic year. The group bridges the Museum and the student body by collaborating with staff to promote the Museum on campus and represent campus inside the Museum. The student advisory group will plan and host creative, academic, and social events at the museum specifically for students. For more information, contact Rachel Heisler, assistant curator of education, academic programs.

PhotoFutures: Collecting Art for Notre Dame

PhotoFutures is a collaborative collecting group at the Snite Museum of Art that acquires contemporary photography for the University of Notre Dame. Designed for students of any major, this six-session co-curricular program combines issues related to museum collecting, contemporary photography, and socially-engaged artistic practice. Students will critique individual photographs and evaluate artists' portfolios, and also engage in critical discussions with the artists themselves, Snite Museum curators, and select faculty. Ultimately, students will develop their own collecting criteria to recommend a photograph for acquisition that adds value to the permanent collection of the Snite Museum and supports the mission of the University. 

This fall, PhotoFutures will explore how images affect our understanding of climate change. Featured photographers include Sebastiao Salgado, Joel Sartore, Edward Burtynsky, Robb Kendrick, James Balog, Robert and Shana ParkeHarrison, and Christine Simpson. Faculty from biology, civil engineering, theology, and creative writing will join the discussions.

Register for PhotoFutures through Class Search. This non-credit opportunity is listed under Art History (ARHI30540), but it is open to all students.

Gallery Teaching Program

If you have a passion for art and an interest in teaching, consider being a student gallery teacher at the Snite Museum for the 2017-2018 academic year. Undergraduate students in this position support both the Museum and its partner departments by teaching through art when classes visit the Snite Museum. All gallery teachers participate in a gallery teaching practicum, held on Friday afternoons both semesters, that explores teaching and learning through works of art.

The Snite Museum is currently looking for students to teach Spanish language, Italian language, and Writing and Rhetoric classes. All gallery teachers are also eligible to help teach Moreau First Year Experience classes, too. For more information about these paid positions, contact Bridget Hoyt, curator of education, or fill out an application (language classes or Writing and Rhetoric). If you would like to be considered for both a language and a Writing and Rhetoric position, please indicate your interest on the language classes application. Applications are due April 5th.
