Sessions: Radical Museums with Nina Simon, author and Executive Director of Santa Cruz Museum of Art & History
Over the last twenty years, audiences for museums, galleries, and performing arts institutions have decreased. Cultural institutions argue that their programs provide unique cultural and civic value, but increasingly people have turned to other sources for entertainment, learning, and dialogue. Museum consultant and author, Nina Simon, leads a discussion about how cultural institutions can reconnect with the public and demonstrate their value and relevance in contemporary life, and how museums can experiment with audience participation while still upholding traditional models.
ADMISSION IS FREE, RSVP REQUIRED
Sessions is an ongoing series of in-depth, intimate conversations designed to facilitate inquiry into the cultural, political, and social topics affecting artists and the art world.
Space is limited to ten attendees and RSVPs are required. Selected readings will be provided ahead of time for discussion. To RSVP or for questions regarding Sessions, please email Erika Recordon at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (347) 249-5406.
