Level of Education of Students Involved
Arts and Sciences
Valparaiso University is currently in a unique time of debate and unrest due to the decision to sell Brauer Museum art pieces, also known as "deaccessioning", to fund freshman dormitory renovations. As a digital media student who is interested in the art of storytelling and video production, I took it upon myself to create a documentary that shows the story from various perspectives of impacted individuals. The documentary will also include news articles, audio from other interviews, and footage of the museum and various forms of activism in response to the deaccessioning. Currently, there is no form of media that displays multiple aspects of the story besides the "artisacoreresource" website. I believe it is important for people inside and outside of the Valpo community to understand the importance and effects of this unprecedented situation on our community and other universities.
