Saturday, June 2nd: Beyond Outreach: Museums, Audience & Community

Beyond Outreach: Museums, Audience & Community
Andrew Freedman Home (1125 Grand Concourse, Bronx)
4-6pm
Free

Some museums are engaging in particularly creative programming, education and free admission, or re-imagining how a museum is supposed to look and feel. Others are radically re-thinking “outreach” by producing community-based projects or partnering with reality TV shows.

This panel discussion brings museum professionals together to discuss how museums help define community and their role in it, with a specific eye on innovation.

Panelists include:

• Holly Block of the Bronx Museum of the Arts
• Tom Finkelpearl of the Queens Museum of Art
• Thelma Golden of the Studio Museum in Harlem
• Eugenie Tsai of the Brooklyn Museum

This discussion will be moderated by Deborah Fisher, Executive Director of A Blade of Grass, and will allow the audience an inside perspective of the exciting practice of broadening audiences and maintaining lasting community relationships.
