Engaging Students + Families At a University Art Museum

Isabella_Stewart_Gardner_Museum-Boston_MA-USA.normalRecently, I asked “How do you engage students and families at a university museum?” of some of my favorite professional groups, and the responses were so illuminating.  Soon, I’ll summarize the most relevant and interesting studies and articles for a detailed post, but here are a few of the best: The University of Chicago’s Cultural Policy Center report Campus Art Museums in the 21st Century; A Conversation, suggested by Linda Berghoff, When Being Third Place Is a Good Thing, suggested by Seth Frankel, and The Wallace Foundation’s More Than Just a Party, about the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, suggested by Blake Miller.
