Teaching Museum of Art

What can we learn from this art? A tour of Augustana's teaching art museum

But what is a teaching museum? Is it something new? Yes and no. Augustana has had an art collection for more than a century but the word "teaching" was inserted into the museum name during the 2013-14 school year.


Yarn “bombs” under construction

Augustana students, staff and community members learned to crochet this week to prepare the Yarn Bomb public sculpture. #yarnbombqc
