Abstract
Drawing from primary sources from the archival collection of the University Archives, this thesis presents a case study of the practices and methods employed by Ruth Lawrence, the first permanent full-time curator/director of the Weisman Art Museum. Through the pursuit of exhibitions, relationships, and outreach initiatives that were relevant to University students and to the greater community, Lawrence transformed a gallery experiment into an art establishment at the University of Minnesota, and in turn, cultivated her personal growth and professional career to become and experienced Curator/Director. Completed as part of a hybrid project, the thesis is complemented by a website designed by the author: http://www.tc.umn.edu/~wils0952/index.html
