    After months of Covid-19 closure, museums are having to dramatically modify operations. Onsite visitation objectives are upended. Hygiene issues are at the fore of whether and how to provide visitor-interpretation via audio devices, kiosks and other in-gallery interactives. Institutional audiences are growing digitally and this new paradigm deeply impacts accessibility - all of this while the United States approaches an election season!

    Join speakers Emily Holtrop, Cincinnati Art Museum, Dr. Darryl Williams, Franklin Institute, Liz Gardner, Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Caroline Angel Burke, Edward M Kennedy Institute, and Suzanne Aiello, Art Processors in a lively discussion exploring the challenges and silver linings that these shifting objectives are having on reaching museum audiences in a post-quarantine world.

    Do Museums Still Need Objects?

    Once perceived as static “cabinets of curiosities”, museums are now evolving their missions to meet the needs of their ever-changing communities. As we think about how museums will look in the future, we also need to think about how collections serve diverse audiences. The question remains: Do museums still need objects?

    The MAAM Annual Conference will examine this question in its entirety. We will discuss the ways in which art, history, and science collections can play a new, or different, role in the museum. We will discuss how digital technologies make collections more accessible to communities. We will discuss how museums thrive with and without collections. We will discuss tough topics regarding collections. We want to know what you think about this question!

    What will the program look like?

    The Virtual Annual Meeting will take place over October 5-16, 2020. We will have approximately 10 days worth of content including webinars, program affinity group meetings, the Weil Lecture, our Annual Meeting, and other networking opportunities.
