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.

One Club Deadline, Friday May 1, 2020

The One Club’s free global portfolio review

The positive response to The One Club Online Portfolio Review has been absolutely phenomenal, with nearly a thousand young creatives from around the world already registered to have their work critiqued.

That said, there’s always room for more! If you’re a student or recent grad and haven’t yet uploaded your portfolio, or if you’re a creative professional looking to give back to the next generation of creatives throughout the month of May, you have until this Friday. May 1 to register.

The Online Portfolio Review is free of charge for all participants.

REGISTRATION DEADLINE: MAY 1

FOR REVIEWERS & PROFESSIONALS

Break up the monotony of quarantine by paying it forward professionally! You’ll only be assigned as many portfolios as you’d like to take on, and you’ll have a few weeks to write a review of each person’s work. You’ll even have an opportunity to continue the conversation if you’d like to guide a young creative post-pandemic.

SIGN UP TO REVIEW PORTFOLIOS

FOR STUDENTS & RECENT GRADS

You’ve worked hard to get this far — don’t let a little thing like a worldwide lockdown get in the way of gaining feedback from the very creative professionals you hope to impress when things get better. Once you’ve uploaded your portfolio, it will be assigned to multiple creative professionals, in order to give you a broad scope of opinions of your work.

ONLINE SYMPOSIUM:
Illustration and Its Histories:
New Resources, New Voices, New Directions

A SYMPOSIUM ORGANIZED BY THE ROCKWELL CENTER FOR AMERICAN VISUAL STUDIES AND THE HUNTER COLLEGE DEPARTMENT OF ART AND ART HISTORY

The Symposium will be held online
Friday, March 27, 2020
9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Organized by the Rockwell Center for American Visual Studies at the Norman Rockwell Museum, Stockbridge, Massachusetts, and the Department of Art and Art History at Hunter College, New York City, this one-day interdisciplinary online symposium brings together scholars, curators, and artists who are exploring new approaches to the study of illustration within historical and contemporary frameworks.

As a set of practices and a cultural force, illustration emerged in the 19th century as a new and distinctly modern phenomenon. A vital component of the visual languages of advertising, design, publishing, and entertainment, illustration is omnipresent in modern culture, yet its historical and theoretical specifics have remained relatively unexamined. This symposium aims to bring together researchers and practitioners across multiple fields who are interested in the history, practice, and subjects of illustration, and who want to contribute to the emerging field of illustration studies.

The theme of the symposium’s morning panel on immigration and migration in illustrating is inspired by the Norman Rockwell Museum’s current exhibition, Finding Home: Four Artists’ Stories.

Full Schedule, Info and RSVP here.
