Block Museum at Northwestern University director Lisa Corrin received French Impressionism as a randomly assigned term paper topic in high school. While researching this topic at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, she discovered “how art could be a window onto other ways of perceiving and understanding the world,” and helped inspire her career in museums. This video is part of our Centennial Conversations series, in which we asked some museum directors to tell us about their formative experiences in art museums, in honor of AAMD’s 100th anniversary.

"Through participation in UNESCO the United States has signaled the importance of international cooperation in education, science, cultural awareness and communication, all of which serve to strengthen ties among nations and societies. These messages stand at the heart of American democracy and underlie the activities of our organizations. Despite its regrettable decision, we call upon the United States to continue to work with UNESCO and the broader international community to promote appreciation of the outstanding value of our shared cultural heritage." Statement from Archaeological Institute of America, American Alliance of Museums, American Anthropological Association, American Schools of Oriental Research (ASOR), Association of Art Museum Directors, Society for Classical Studies, and U.S. Committee of the Blue Shield Regarding the United States of America’s Intention to Withdraw from UNESCO
