Discussion: Beyond Outreach: Museums, Audience, and Community

Saturday, June 02 2012
4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Some museums are engaging in particularly creative programming, education and free admission, or reimagining how a museum is supposed to look and feel. Others are radically rethinking “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 provide the audience with an inside perspective of the exciting practice of broadening audiences and maintaining lasting community relationships.


Location: Andrew Freedman Home, 1125 Grand Concourse, Bronx

Time: 4-6pm

Conversation hosted in collaboration with A Blade of Grass.
