Museums, Farms, Images, and Experiences: Rural NY in the 21st Century
In a world of constant technological advancements, how do we best trace the history of agriculture over time and bring it to life for our visitors? This session will share examples of innovative programming from the largest living history museum in New York State, Genesee Country Village & Museum, which offers experiences to see, touch, taste, smell, explore, and experience 68 historic buildings from the 19th century. Session attendees will also see the connections made by The Farmer’s Museum’s photography collection, Plowline: Images of Rural New York as they actively collect original photography that documents changes in agricultural practice, rural life, and farming family in New York State.
