Students + Staff: Moving from Experiment to Practice

With this fourth post in the Students + Staff series, I conclude my field report of the spring 2016 Pitt museum studies course, “Introduction to Museum Studies in the Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh,” and posit ways our work leads into museum practice of the future.

Students + Staff: Education and Engagement

I’m thrilled to report progress of the museum studies students + staff experiment underway here at the Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh (CMP) and Pitt’s Department of History of Art and Architecture (HAA) since my previous two field reports (co-creating a dynamic museum profession and curation and education).

Students + Staff: Curation and Education

My previous field report on the museum studies students + staff experiment underway here at the Carnegie Museums and University of Pittsburgh documented the beginning of our semester with the hopes that CMP’s and Pitt’s pioneering collaboration can bring about positive and concrete change toward a dynamic museum profession.

Students + Staff: Co-Creating a Dynamic Museum Profession at CMP

Today’s museums strive to be increasingly relevant, ethical, and responsible public-facing institutions by engaging with issues like accessibility, diversity, collaboration, and inclusion. Yet in many ways, these are still buzzwords of best practice, and not yet actual pillars of museum work. This begs the question: can museum work of the future solidly marry the theory of ideas and the practicality of making the best intentions happen on the ground?
