Conversation: San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, NLS, 4 Art MicrohubsThursday, December 6th, 2012 Categories: ARC Partners, Updates
The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) has invited NLS and four other art microhubs to participate in a conversation to talk about how smaller-scale art spaces are crucial in both “high-culture” cities and towns with fewer cultural resources. The conversation will take place on Tuesday, December 11th at 4pmAST, 3pmEST, live on Google+ Hangout.
- What are the advantages or disadvantages of living in a place with fewer or smaller-scale art organizations, vs “high-culture” towns with major or many museums?
- How do you think the impact of smaller-sized organizations compare in each of the two types of places?
- How can SFMOMA or other large-scale institutions or museums help further the reach of smaller organizations? Or should they at all?
- What should we do with the SFMOMA Art MicroHubs blog? What would make it useful for you?
