Highlighting nonprofit organizations and individuals doing stellar work!
- The Cleveland Museum of Art is set to debut Gallery One, an interactive multi-generational learning gallery. The presentation at the 2012 Museum Computer Network Conference primed me for this and I’m so glad it’s finally here. Road trip!
- Art folks were all abuzz when the Dallas Museum of Art coaxed Mark Leonard (formerly of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Getty Museum) out of retirement to become its new Chief Conservator. Now we know how they did it: the opportunity to build a department from scratch housed in an amazing public conservation studio that’s destined to grace the cover of Dwell magazine.
- The New Media Consortium recently released its 2012 Horizon Report: Museum Edition. I’m shamelessly plugging the report not only because I served on the Advisory Board but also because it’s a great resource on emerging technological trends that impact educational and interpretive efforts in museum settings. Download it (for free!) and start dreaming big.
