ArtViews is a series of panel discussions that addresses critical issues impacting museums.

Art museums constantly strive to engage audiences in innovative and impactful ways that make their collections and exhibitions relevant and vibrant. Over the past several years, museum professionals have developed activities and approaches to gallery interpretation that meet demands both to expand the diversity and size of audiences as well as to respond to pressures to increase revenue through new programming. This ArtViews brings together a panel of museum leaders—including educators, curators, and directors—to discuss current strategies in museum programming and gallery interpretation that address the goals of deeper audience engagement, racial equity, and sustainability.
