Earlier this week, Katherine Brooks (HuffPo’s senior Arts & Culture editor) described nine things museums can do to improve how people experience art. Suggestions include rebranding, identifying the construct itself as a safe space, and working to ensure the spaces are accessible for a variety of diverse populations emotionally and physically.
It’s a really well-worded piece about how museums can do more for its audiences. And while I usually would just add some quip about “more alcohol, less mixers!” (well, that’s true, Katherine), I really just think museums these days are doing some of the coolest things to interact with its public, and I’m totally on board.
But really, less mixers.
