Object Lab
Object Lab is a four-day, all expenses paid, material studies program for third and fourth year undergraduate students. It exposes participants to new and diverse means of interacting with, studying, and analyzing material things. Since 2009, the program has brought together a range of students and scholars from the fields of Art History, History, History of Science, Archeology, Literature, and Art, as well as practicing artists and manufacturers. Students learn through engagement with scholars, artists, and manufacturers as well as from hands-on exposure to objects from the collections of the Chipstone Foundation and other museums. Object Lab takes place annually in May or June. An online application is available from late February through March. Selected students will be invited to have a telephone interview.
