American art museums are concerned about public participation. In this illustrated talk, Derrick Cartwright looks at the problems inherent in encouraging visitor participation, with special emphasis on how the University Galleries at USD are seeking to address this broadly felt challenge. Examples from a wide variety of institutions, including several at which Cartwright has served as director, will serve to demonstrate the complexity surrounding public engagement with contemporary museum practice.
For ages 55 and up.
