DeVault Teaching Gallery
The DeVault Teaching Gallery is an experimental and flexible teaching space within the Mathers Museum of World Cultures. This space allows for the short-term use of artifacts for instruction, inspiration, and experimentation, and is designed for the exploration of objects in adventuresome yet secure ways.
Researchers and faculty are encouraged to contact Ellen Sieber, (firstname.lastname@example.org) Chief Curator of Collections, to review the MMWC's collections for possible research/study projects. The Chief Curator will work with researchers to develop programs to meet their needs.Learn more about current research projects
