In honor of our centennial we asked AAMD members to share formative experiences in their careers as art museum directors. In the latest Centennial Conversation, American Folk Art Museum director Anne-Imelda Radice talks about how almost flunking out of school and a flood in Florence, Italy changed the course of her life.

Museums and Communities News for November is here! In this month's edition, we have some great examples of how AAMD member museums work with veterand and military: - Joslyn Art Museum's Artpost program paired artists and veterans who then created artworks together. Their work is now on display at the museum - Portland Art Museum hosts free open houses for the veteran and military communities. They also partnered with Combat Paper to hold programs at the museum in which military uniforms are transformed into handmade paper. - Penn Museum curator C. Brian Rose regularly works with the military community to help them connect with the cultural heritage of the Middle East, where many troops have served or will serve in the future. Also in this month's edition: - Denver Art Museum hosts an exhibition of young artists on the autism spectrum - The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens demonstrates the reach of their programs through their AAMD community impact map - Frye Art Museum's creative aging programs for people with dementia
