From the Magazine
At the Berman Museum, students are taking a multidisciplinary approach to collaborating with contemporary artists and curating exhibitions at the intersection of some of the world’s biggest issues.
An international component was added to select sections of the Common Intellectual Experience (CIE) last year thanks to the college’s partnership with the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK).
