MON-C06 - Extroverting the Museum Experience: Implementing New Frameworks for Social/Cultural Engagement

Monday, October 22
1:30 PM - 3:00 PM
Location: 119


Art institutions looking to expand relevance are creating frameworks for social/cultural engagement by curating their properties as places of cultural interaction with the arts. The session presents three cases where museums are extroverting into parklike settings to strengthen community programming and expand a curatorial vision into the power of landscape.
