Museum Studies Minor

Museums have become a vital and important aspect of education. The field of Museum Studies is an everlasting experience, full of intriguing applications and techniques. Originally, the Greeks called a museum, mouseion, translated literally as “Temple of the Muses.” Culturally we have strengthened this idea of a building devoted to learning and the arts. As our museum studies advance our knowledge, so it expands and embraces history, artifacts, and art of the past. From the age of antiquity we have treasured and preserved what society has created.

We are excited to be a part of the B.F. A. 2015. We have been given the opportunity to display and practice our knowledge of the complex world of museums. We want to sincerely thank the Plattsburgh State Art Museum and each artist who has been involved in the exhibition.

Abstract Expressionism from the Permanent Collection

Abstract Expressionism is a post-World War II arts movement starting in the 1940s. The movement began in New York, making this the first American arts movement to become international. This style of art was based on spontaneous, automatic or subconscious creation. The abstract expressionist artists used emotions to illustrate their paintings, sculptures and other forms of media. The paintings do not depict a certain topic but convey what the artist is feeling emotionally and expressively.
