“The Future of In-House Design in an Outsourcing World”

Back from the 2013 American Alliance of Museums Conference, great conference, best in years!  As part of the conference I was invited to present on the panel “The Future of In-House Design in an Outsourcing World”.  Above is a copy of my presentation.  I was asked to be part of the panel because of my blog post “The Future of Museum Exhibition Design, Part I”.

Session Description:
“Come hear five perspectives on the future for in-house design—from people who have built large, award-winning exhibit departments to consultants who have built teams of consultants and in-house staff and helped museums deal with dysfunctional in-house exhibit departments.” Final Program, Page 52 Session Description

Moderator:
Jenny-Sayre Ramberg, Director of Planning and Design, Exhibits and Design, National Aquarium in Baltimore

Presenters:

Paul Martin, Vice President, Science Learning, Science Museum of Minnesota
David Harvey, Senior Vice President for Exhibitions, American Museum of Natural History

As part of the session I created a survey “Exhibition Production In-house or Outsourced ? “, I will collect resposnses for a month then post results here on Museum Planner.  Thank you!

I will follow this post with photos from the conference and museum trends that I observed at the conference.
