    Visioning Change

    New York State’s museums and cultural institutions are responding to our changing audiences, the promise of new technology, and the shifting availability of resources. We are creating powerful museums through new partnerships with arts and community organizations, education and environmental institutions, the tourism industry, and local governments. As we strive to define ourselves and the meaning of diversity, we are changing the questions we ask and how we tell stories about our collections. Our need for learning and sharing what we do by coming together as a field is greater than ever. Join us in Rochester to discuss what comes next and help us build a vibrant future!

    The Decorative Arts Trust will offer the Spring 2018 Symposium, The Upper Hudson: Four Centuries of Craft and Commerce from May 2-6, 2018. The program combines behind-the-scenes tours of the area’s noteworthy museums and historic sites, special visits to private collections, and lectures by leading scholars and experts on topics concerning the decorative arts, conservation, and historic preservation. 

    Locations visited during the program stretch west from Albany and Troy to Cooperstown, and south to Hudson. Participants will enjoy an in-depth introduction to an extraordinary variety of collections and historic structures, including the Albany Institute of History and Art, Schuyler Mansion State Historic Site, the New York State Museum, the Rensselaer County Historical Society, and St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, Troy.

     Registration for this symposium is now open to all members of the Trust, and we welcome new members. Graduate students and young professionals are invited to register at a discounted rate or apply for two scholarships to attend.
