Engaging Community through Museum Collections
With Dr. Khalid el-Hakim, Jessica Rubenacker, Lynda Romero (Pojoaque Pueblo) and Jennifer Himmelreich (Diné).
As we reflect on the history and purpose of museums with a critical eye, it is also important to reexamine the various roles and uses of cultural collections. How are museum collections being used? By whom? And to what end? Join panelists from across the country as they discuss the ways in which they use collections to engage with the communities they serve.
This event is free and open to the public. Advanced registration is required.
This discussion is the third of four events in this year’s Indian Arts Research Center Speaker Series.
2022 marks the centennial of the IARC’s collection of Native Southwest art and history. This year’s Speaker Series, One Hundred Years Later: The Indian Arts Research Center and the Role of Collections in the Twenty-First Century, seeks to explore the role of collections, then and now, and the responsibility and accountability of collecting institutions to the communities they serve. Speakers from across the country will discuss museum practices, community collaboration, and the future of collections in the twenty-first century.
