Arm yourself with the confidence to undertake a structural renovation. This session will review the reimagining of three institutions: Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art, Utah Museum of Fine Arts, and the Heard Museum, Grand Gallery. As a round-table discussion, the story of all three museums will be shared through unique perspectives on how major construction projects led them to reinvent processes, reevaluate best practices, rethink object storage, and generate alternative ways to engage the public.
