FOR EDUCATIONAL USE ONLY…An Exhibit of Film and Video from the Webster University Art Department Library
The Cecille R. Hunt Gallery is pleased to present For Educational Use Only. The gallery will host an interactive learning environment to view the film and video works by well-known modern and contemporary artists collected to date by Webster University’s Art Department library. The works will be displayed as part of an exploratory teaching method for the taught Art Forum class as part of the art department’s curriculum and are adapted to create a new, temporary learning environment. As a direct response to traditional higher education teaching methods, For Educational Use Only will provide a learning and resource center for the collected works along with related books, videos, websites and other media. Designed as an improvised classroom, the gallery will be utilized for these multimedia artworks in order to integrate and share these instructional resources and to provide a conceptual framework that allows flexibility in both teaching and learning. This multimedia project has been created as part of an organized learning activity and to provide a setting for research of modern and contemporary film and video through a series of weekly non-traditional instructional activities and viewing programs. Materials are included under the fair use exemption of the U.S. Copyright Law and have been prepared according to the educational multimedia fair use guidelines and are restricted from further use.
