High school teachers sought for fellowship with Arkansas museum

BENTONVILLE, Ark. — The Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art is seeking applicants for its new teacher fellowship.

The William Reese Company Teacher Fellowship seeks to enrich high school curriculum by encouraging research into connections between American art and core academic subjects, museum administrators announced last week in a news release. Open to high school educators affiliated with any public or private school, the fellowship will be a one-month residential program to take place this summer. It will include a $4,000 stipend that can be used to cover transportation and housing costs during the recipient’s residency at Crystal Bridges.

Selection will be based on applicants’ projects and their potential to enrich their high school curriculum in language arts, history, social studies or science. Creative research projects that enhance traditional teaching methods and engagement are encouraged.

Fellows will have access to the art and library special collections of Crystal Bridges as well as the University of Arkansas libraries in nearby Fayetteville, Ark.

“Crystal Bridges Library offers not only a collection of more than 50,000 volumes of art reference material, it also includes substantial holdings of primary resources relating to American art history in the special collection and archives,” Catherine Petersen, library director, said in a statement.

The fellowship was established by the William Reese Co. of New Haven, Conn., which helped Crystal Bridges develop its library.
