Exhibitions, featuring real objects and tangible artifacts, and organized around research questions, are powerful formats for creating and sharing knowledge. The Viz initiative sought to foster museum literacy and curatorial skills among faculty and students through large and small exhibitions, special assignments, and workshops. The Perlman Teaching Museum, Gould Library, and Weitz Center for Creativity White Spaces offer settings for animated dialogue and intellectual exchange around the meanings embedded in objects.
