Art Museum Faculty Resource Guide: Self-Tour of PAFA Affiliated Artists

This is a faculty resource guide composed of faculty testimonials and handouts for integrating the La Salle Art Museum into classroom instruction.

The La Salle Art Museum

The mission of the La Salle University Art museum is to further the University’s Lasallian educational objectives by helping students, other members of the University community and the general public to experience significant, original works of art in an intimate setting and to place them in meaningful contexts. In addition to acquiring, preserving and exhibiting its collections, the Museum offers viewers an opportunity to sharpen their aesthetic perception and to investigate the interrelationships which emerge between art and other disciplines.

This guide was created for faculty to use independently. It includes a self-tour of paintings by PAFA-affiliated artists at the La Salle University Art Museum and a resource list for where to go to view more artworks by these artists.
