The Hallie Ford Museum of Art serves as a unique educational resource for Willamette University faculty. The museum’s collections and special exhibitions are available to support and enhance the university curriculum. Our collections cover a wide range of time and cultures and are available to faculty teaching in all disciplines. Brochures of these permanent exhibitions, and some special exhibitions, are also available. 

Previous collaborations have included:

  • Tours of the permanent collection and/or special exhibitions
  • Faculty selection of available works not currently on view for a class visit
  • Partnering with academic departments on visiting scholars and lectures
  • Faculty curatorial projects
  • Opportunities for visiting artists to speak to classes

Many faculty-guided student research projects have been conducted using the museum's collection. Some of those projects have resulted in online exhibitions, with technical support provided by systems librarians at Hatfield Library. 


The museum seeks new ways to collaborate with faculty and support the Willamette curriculum. For more information about how Hallie Ford Museum of Art can support your teaching efforts please contact collection curator, Jonathan Bucci.

"Willamette is fortunate to have a museum that is dedicated to supporting the undergraduate curriculum and is flexible enough to allow faculty to approach the director with exhibition ideas."
