The Future of Museums

Over the past year, museums have worked to find footing within many complex and widespread challenges, including a global pandemic and the ongoing civil rights movement. As museums adapt to meet the world where it is today, we are tasked with considering how museums can continue to change and grow into the future, and who their audience and supporters are.

How do you imagine the museum of the future, and how can we build it together? In our final roundtable of the fall semester, these are the questions that will be discussed by our esteemed panelists, including curator and design historian Michelle Millar Fisher, cultural organizer and curator La Tanya Autry, and educator, writer, and executive director of NXTHVNNico Wheadon.
