what will the museum of the future be like?
We gotta have art!
The upcoming May issue of MUSEUM EDUCATION MONITOR will focus on ART-related museum education research, interpretation, evaluation, and professional resources in museums, galleries, historic sites, science centres, parks, zoos, aquaria and other sites of informal learning. Projects in past years have described work in art history, art therapy, the visual arts, community arts, art-based research, and just about anything related to art and/or art museums!
To assist these research efforts, MEM continues to offer a free introductory one-year subscription to any student in a museum education-related course or program. One year complimentary subscriptions are also available to currently unwaged museum educators. Visit http://www.mccastle.com/Public/MEM.aspx for details or get in touch as below.
