The Metropolitan Museum of Art External Affairs Team leads a presentation about the reinstallation and funding of the Arts of Africa, Oceania, and the Americas Galleries at the NYC Meet-Up
Hello MANY Members and Members of our Museum Community,
Happy Thanksgiving and welcome to our November edition of This Month in NYS Museums.
In this newsletter, we learned how Discover Albany worked with cultural and heritage sites, choosing collaboration over competition to increase attendance with new visitor experiences. On November 14 we traveled to Dia:Beacon for our last fall workshop and learned about interpreting Queer History at historic sites. I hope our article on the new permanent interpretation at the Alice Austen House will do justice to the important work happening about sites working on creating more inclusive content. Lastly, we continue our series "MANY Profile" as we interview Richard Price who has just retired from serving 35 years as Head of Publications at the Corning Museum of Glass.
This Month’s "Letter From Erika" shares important and exciting news about MANY’s advocacy work and AAM’s Museum Advocacy Day.
Thank you to all of the museums who hosted our fall workshops and meet-ups and thank you to the over 430 museum professionals who joined us around the state! We look forward to seeing you all in Albany for "The Power of Partnership" next March!
Thank you for your continuing support!
