A Museum is a School defines the museum as a space for education and establishes artists and their audience as colleagues. The museum becomes a forum for exchange and the art it exhibits becomes a means of acquiring and expanding knowledge. Camnitzer has described the piece as a contract that makes the museum accountable to the public. Located by the entrance to WWU's art museum, the Western Gallery, the text reflects the museum's commitment to create an environment for learning, the exchange of ideas and critical discussion.
