Collaborative Research and Creative Service Learning Project

This semester saw the final completion and implementation of a service learning project which involved majors in all the areas in the Art Department.  Students in ART 329 Historical Methods, working in consultation with the Missouri State Museum and the Department of Natural Resources, developed, researched, wrote, designed, and implemented a website that provides detailed information about the Thomas Hart Benton-created murals in the Missouri state capitol in Jefferson City.  The students created the website to serve a large range of audiences, from state legislators, to teachers and school groups, to anyone with internet access and an interest in this Missouri artist or these works.
