    Join museum colleagues, architects, other design and construction professionals, and project funders in lively conversation about what is involved in a museum building project.

    Attend a day-long workshop on all the elements you need to know to plan, design, and build a successful and sustainable new museum or addition to an existing museum. Learn about planning and building best practices, and how to identify project “red flags.”

    Visit new and refurbished museums by attending behind-the-scenes tours. Meet the 2019 winners of the prestigious Buildy Award given to honor exemplary museum building projects. Network with conferees at special receptions and informal gatherings.

    As in other years, there will be AIA continuing education credits for the workshop and sessions.

    Description

    Speakers: Deborah Schwartz, Director, the Brooklyn Historical Society and Fath Ruffins, Curator, National Museum of American History

    While we don’t know everything about what motivates visitors to come to museums, we do know a great deal gathered over time from quantitative and qualitative studies, as well as good old fashioned anecdotes. Join us for a conversation informed by studies such as LaPlaca Cohen’s important Culture Track reports, to a sampling of studies created for individual museums or exhibitions.  Should we extrapolate from other museums to learn more about our own institutions? What can we learn when we listen carefully to our visitors? Are we making full use of our knowledge when we make decisions about what exhibitions and programs to produce each year? Are we giving visitors what they want, or are we following our own idiosyncratic interests? Given the competition for the public’s use of their valuable leisure time, are museums paying enough attention to what we know about our audiences. Schwartz and Ruffins have decades of experience, and enjoy challenging the status quo. Come join the conversation!
