The Future of Museums Discussion

Thurs., April 15, 7 p.m.
With Light Reception

In the rapidly changing environment of the 21st century, museums face new challenges, and opportunities. In a wired world, how will digital distribution affect content? Will America’s changing demographic profile influence exhibitions? Can the museum function as a center for object-based learning and creative problem-solving?
In a lively and thought-provoking discussion, Dorothy Kosinski, director, Phillips Collection; Richard Kurin, under secretary for history, art, and culture, Smithsonian Institution; Kenneth Paulson, president and chief operating officer, Newseum; and Jack Rasmussen, director and curator, American University Museum, discuss these and other questions. Reception follows.
