10AM to 4PM
Art Museum of WVU, Museum Education Center
The American Alliance of Museums has designated five core documents that all museums need for effective operation and adherence to professional standards in the museum field. These fundamental documents provide guidelines for preserving artifacts for future generations, educating and engaging with the community, and ensuring the growth and stability of your institution.
This workshop will address each of the five documents in a panel-style format followed by a Q&A session and discussions in small groups. Lunch is provided, and an optional tour of the Art Museum of WVU will be held at the end of the workshop.
Five experienced museum professionals will serve on the panel, answer your questions, and guide discussion groups on each of the documents:
-Rebecca Massie Lane, Director, Washington County Museum of Fine Arts, Hagerstown, MD
-Judith O’Toole, Director, Westmoreland Museum of American Art, Greensburg, PA
-Maureen Rolla, Director of Strategic Initiatives, Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA
-Geoffrey Fleming, Director, Huntington Museum of Art, Huntington Museum of Art, Huntington, WV
-Joyce Ice, Director, Art Museum of WVU, Morgantown, WV
The event is $10 for WVAM Members and $20 for Non-Members.
