"More people go to museums than attend all the sports contests in any given year combined."
- J. Carter Brown, director of the U.S. National Gallery of Art from 1969 to 1992
Students in the Museum Studies program learn and practice the major functions of museums—collection, preservation, conservation, exhibition and public education—in courses such as Curatorial Skills, Photography, and Computer Graphics. Not only do students learn to record art and culture through various media; as seniors in high school, they also have the chance to work alongside museum staff on major projects at the Smithsonian Institution and other Washington museums. The program also offers educational travel to study museum practices in New York, Los Angeles, Madrid, and Barcelona. Many Duke Ellington School of the Arts alumni are working as exhibition designers, museum educators, and curators around the United States.
