Museum Education and Art Therapy: Exploring an Innovative Partnership
Peacock, Karen
Art Therapy: Journal of the American Art Therapy Association, v29 n3 p133-137 2012
This report describes collaborations between the disciplines of museum education and art therapy, which inspired the implementation of a pilot art therapy program at the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art in Tennessee (USA). Because relatively limited research has been conducted on this trend, the author reviewed museum exhibits and programming, as well as sought data from e-mail surveys of museum educators and art therapists who have worked at this interface. Survey results suggest that offering art therapy as a means of furthering the museum's mission, where appropriate, is key in developing innovative partnerships between art therapy and museums.
