The Great Transformation: How Are Museums Using Digital Technologies to Advance Education, Reshape Exhibitions and Redefine the Visitor’s Experience?

June 24, 2013 @ 6:30 pm


Sebastian Chan, Director of Digital and Emerging Media, Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum
Carrie Rebora Barratt, Associate Director of Collections & Administration,Metropolitan Museum of Art
Allegra Burnette, Creative Director Digital Media, Museum of Modern Art
Kim Robledo-Diga, Director of Innovation & Learning, Newark Museum
Jake Barton, Principal, Local Project

Moderator & Panel Organizer: Robin White Owen, Principal, MediaCombo

Art museums are using digital technologies in groundbreaking ways: creating smart phone apps and interactive kiosks, turning catalogs into e-publications, using social media to crowd source exhibitions  and acquisitions, re-imagining access to their on-line collections, building maker spaces for artists and visitors.   Is all this redefining the museum’s mission and the curator’s role or expanding their possibilities?

Join us for a “behind the scenes” conversation with five experts who are leading this transformation.  Each of them will demonstrate the cutting-edge technologies and innovative vision they are bringing into their institutions, and setting benchmarks for  the field.  We will get a firsthand look at how museums are responding to the ever-changing digital environment and will also hear about some inventive developments underway at institutions in other parts of the country and around the world.
