LOOKING 101: Block Museum - Northwestern University
Skip to main content


September 22-December 4, 2022
Katz Gallery
Learn to look in this dynamic space for teaching and learning through art.

This exhibition will support Northwestern University’s undergraduate curriculum with an emphasis on first-year students, and tools built around allowing anyone to observe, critique, reflect and express their ideas in front of a work of art.

All works on view will be from the Block’s Collection, selected in dialogue with faculty. The main focus will be on helping students develop observational and analytical skills through close looking and discussion. Faculty can schedule the gallery space for independent use with their classes or in partnership with Block curatorial staff, who are available to lead object-based discussions using artwork as prompts for conversations related to the curriculum.

Faculty members interested in learning more about the Block Teaching Gallery are encouraged to contact Essi Rönkkö at essi.ronkko@northwestern.edu.

The exhibition will be open to general public when not scheduled for class use.
