Description
Museums use gallery texts - short descriptions posted near exhibits - to educate people about what they're seeing. They fill a spot between an index card that says "14th century Italian Widget" and a full-length report on your work, and provide a way for the populace to painlessly learn just a little bit more about your art or science, beyond "That looks amazing!" Learn some guidelines for writing gallery texts and get some ideas on how you might incorporate them into your A&S displays. The class will not be recorded. https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/11AVXOt5wLGAp-CxyVRNzvC68Z6V6KL5a9wjfDloTuWQ/edit#slide=id.p
