The Value of Museums
Museums are more than a collection of objects. Museums are more than a resource for a community. Museums are more than a place for solitude, for study, for socialising, for gathering, a place to learn, a place to find inspiration, a place to find joy. Museums are more than one thing to everyone who visits them.
In light of the proposal to eliminate the National Endowment for the Arts and National Endowment for the Humanities I would like to request submissions to feature on this blog of all the things that your museum, art gallery or archive has done to bring value to your communities. Have you worked on a project for your visitors? Have you conducted research to explore something new in your field?
Please email me at arts.museum.education at gmail dot com to start the conversation. I can’t wait to begin featuring your stories.
