International Museum Day 2012
This Friday, May 18, is the 35th annual International Museum Day. As indicated in their press release, the theme of this year’s event is “Museums in a Changing World. New challenges, New inspirations.”
We think that theme is particularly appropriate. As you may know, we feel that Art Authority’s collection of 50,000+ works of western art, free iBook, and our related activities, are a big part of that changing world and those new inspirations. And, yes, some of those new challenges as well. Making a difference in this changing world was the major impetus behind our new summer intern program, as well as a major theme in the “World’s Biggest Art Museum” talk we moderated at Macworld/iWorld.
