AAMD is pleased to present a free public panel at the Detroit Institute of Arts! In Institutions We Trust: A Conversation on the Public Trust will take place Monday, June 9. Art museum collections teach and inspire and are vital to sustaining a well-educated and connected citizenry and a wealth of knowledge to enrich and enlighten our civilization. This panel discussion will explore the issue of the public trust more broadly, seeking perspectives outside the context of art museums. Exploring perspectives from other public entities, such as parks, as well as from public policy perspectives, panelists will help us to understand better the impact of both the phrase and the underlying concept of “the public trust.” Panelists: Adrian Benepe, Senior Vice President and Director of City Park Development, The Trust for Public Land Joseph Nocera, Op-Ed columnist, The New York Times Alicia Bradford, Director, Detroit Recreation Department Karen Cook, Ray Lyman Wilbur Professor of Sociology, Stanford University Moderator: Mark Stryker, arts reporter, the Detroit Free Press We hope you can join us in Detroit! Special thanks to Knight Foundation for sponsoring this event.

Historically, art museums have been physical spaces devoted to preserving artworks and making them visually available to people who walk through their doors. In the past few decades, technology has increasingly transformed museum spaces, affecting everything from how we care for and interpret objects to how we conceptualize exhibitions. On June 9, expert panelists will examine the unique possibilities of digital engagement, reflecting on existing and potential relationships between digital and physical space. Panelists: Piotr Adamczyk of Google Cultural Institute Sree Sreenivasan, Chief Digital Officer at the The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York Jennifer Foley, Director of Interpretation at The Cleveland Museum of Art Lauren Cornell, Curator New Museum Get tickets here! And big thanks to American Federation of Arts for putting together yet another super panel - we are thrilled to be involved!

New on AAMD's website: how Reynolda House Museum of American Art is using art about love and loss to teach empathy and compassion to healthcare professionals. Moving and inspiring for both the power of art, the dedication of healthcare workers who must regularly address loss as part of their jobs, and the innovative partnership that brought the two together!
