The Act of Participating

last edited on Tue. March 24 2015

On March 5, the Smart teamed up with the Mary & Leigh Block Museum of Art at Northwestern University to host a dinner and conversation at the Chicago Cultural Center. It was the third in the How to Make a Smart Museum series of public programs that explore big questions about the future of museums.

Panelists Ariana JacobSusy Bielak, and Prerana Reddy served up case studies that address the question: How do museums foster and support active participation?

Each presentation was followed by a chance for guests—museum professionals, artists, students, teachers, and others—to eat and share ideas.

The How to Make a Smart Museum programming series was made possible by the Efroymson Family Fund.

Additional support was provided by the Illinois Humanities Council and the Franke Institute for the Humanities.
