The Exemplary Museum - Art and Academia

Corinne Glesne

MuseumsEtc  

Exploring the unique set of challenges facing all art museums, The Exemplary Museum is the product of twelve months’ research into America’s leading art museums, and analyses in depth precisely how real success is being achieved. But - importantly - its highly perceptive guidance and conclusions are refreshingly relevant to ANY art museum in ANY country.

Focusing on "exemplary" museums - those which are models of best practice - the book explores the challenges and conditions for success for university art museums. Among the fundamental issues explored are: 
1 How are these museums integrated into the lives of their users?
2 How do users interact with these museums beyond the academic curriculum?
3 What organisational cultures and systems best support these museums?
