Looking forward to Museums Now: Relevance & Representation, a panel assembled by our colleagues at American Federation of Arts. How can museums evolve and thrive despite changing social contexts and art historical practices? How have they modified their missions, practices, and collections to be more inclusive and satisfy a more diverse and interconnected society? Additionally, panelists will discuss how museums have had to re-examine their economic strategies in order to survive periods of economic fluctuation and decreased public funding. Tuesday, September 26 at 6pm. We'll be live-tweeting! Panelists: Tom Finkelpearl, New York City Department of Cultural Affairs Rujeko Hockley, Whitney Museum of American Art Belinda Tate, Kalamazoo Institute of Arts Hrag Vartanian, Hyperallergic Dan Weiss, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York Moderated by Arnold Lehman, Phillips

“I believe that museums, even with their contested histories, can and should be places of civil discourse. We certainly have not been perfect in the past, but this ideal should be our constant goal.” Fralin Museum of Art at the University of Virginia director Matthew McLendon on the recent violence in Charlottesville and reaching the local community both inside and outside the University.
