"It may surprise you to learn that my first important acquisition as the Clark's new director was not a painting, but a bee colony" Our interview of the week is with The Clark director Olivier Meslay. In this column from 2018, he writes about harmonizing the museums' collections and grounds, and preserving and protecting both art and nature.

Great resource - information on over 125 art museum and medical school partnerships. These programs help medical professionals in training hone their diagnostic skills and foster increased empathy for patients through close looking at works of art. Thanks to The University of Texas at Dallas's Edith O'Donnell Institute of Art History.

Interview of the week: Larry Rinder, director of Berkeley Art Museum & Pacific Film Archive. In this wide-ranging interview from spring 2018, he discusses the unique role museums in our current society (his museum showed presidential debates on a large screen outside the building!) and why his dual role as a chief curator and museum director makes him a better fundraiser.

In recent years, art museums have faced a complex set of institutional demands, from scrutiny over ethical issues concerning donor relations, to hiring practices and efforts towards making the museum more accessible to the public. At the same time, museums enjoy a high level of public trust at a time when most American institutions are actively mistrusted. The sector produces over 700,000 jobs, adding over $50 billion to the U.S. GDP. Given this landscape, are art museums structured in ways that enable them to best realize their goals? To answer this question, Ithaka S+R partnered with the AAMD to examine the organizational structure and institutional strategy within the association’s membership.

Interview of the week: National Gallery of Art director Kaywin Feldman and Equal Justice Initiative founder Bryan Stevenson on embracing empathy and confronting American racism in museums. We enjoyed seeing these two in conversation at our conference in Richmond, VA earlier this year!
