Track: 

  • Community Engagement

Museums across the country engage audiences across the sciences, arts, and humanities to create interdisciplinary experiences that help visitors understand our complex world. Learn how an art museum, living history museum, and science center expanded upon these efforts by connecting with content experts from outside their core disciplines and highlighting them at interdisciplinary programs. This project, part of Portal to the Public’s 3-year research study, developed a flexible framework adaptable for smaller or larger museums.
