The Atlanta University Center (AUC) GLAM Center for Collaborative Teaching and Learning partnered with the AUC Early College Program in Art History and Curatorial Studies and the High Museum of Art to offer students the opportunity to curate digital exhibits on the GLAM omeka portal. Through this digital humanities project the 2020 cohort of rising high school juniors and seniors interested in an art history or museum career conducted research on artwork from the High Museum of Art Civil Rights Photography Collection as well as archival material from the AUC Archives Research Center to curate five exhibitions.
