Tea Time: Going Dutch is a collaboration between the UI Museum of Art and Professor Julie Hochstrasser of the School of Art and Art History.
Hochstrasser is teaching "Life and Still Life in the Dutch Golden Age: Crafting an Exhibition," an upper-level undergraduate course designed to give students an opportunity both to work firsthand with an original work of art and to learn about creating museum exhibitions.
Hochstrasser’s class will meet in the Black Box Theater space, where they will undertake an in-depth examination of Pieter Gerritsz van Roestraten’s painting and investigate its place within the larger economic, social, and artistic context of the Dutch Golden Age. Over the course of the semester, the students will develop and mount an auxiliary exhibition about the painting by inventing creative ways to present their research findings to the public.
