The American School Project
The American School Project is an effort to document and share the influence of the pedagogy and creative practices resulting from this original experiment. Current initiatives center around a major exhibition opening at the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art in Spring 2020; an exhibition of work from the American School Archive, produced with OU Libraries, opening in Fall 2018; an exhibition during the 2018 Venice Architecture Biennale; and an accompanying scholarly catalog and symposium.
