"Our museum is very collaborative - we know that the more opinions and voices included, the better the outcome will be, not only for the museum’s future as an innovator in Fort Worth, but to the relevancy that art and the creative experience holds in the lives of our community." Amon Carter Museum of American Art is launching Carter Community Artists. Four local artists will work with the museum to develop and teach education and community programs. Awesome idea!

“The use of technology, what we accession, our publications — it’s not about the outputs, it’s about the impact on people, and that starts with the art” A deep dive on Kaywin Feldman, the first woman to direct the National Gallery of Art. Her first move when she starts the job in March? Listening and learning.

This post from MuseumNext highlights the ways some museums are using Facebook Live, from ASL tours to reuniting Van Gogh's Sunflowers paintings (which now reside in five different museums across the world). Food for thought for museum content creators!
