Museums Now: Relevance & Representation is the next edition of ArtViews, a series of panel discussions that address critical issues in the museum world. In this panel we will explore how museums can evolve and thrive despite changing social contexts and art historical practices. How they have modified their missions, practices, and collections to be more inclusive and satisfy a more diverse and interconnected society. Additionally, panelists will discuss how museums have had to re-examine their economic strategies in order to survive periods of economic fluctuation and decreased public funding.
