Questionnaire: Sensitive Issues in Museums
- Hello One Room Schoolers!
I am not sure my conference presentation topic--coming up @ Mountain
Plains Museum Association this fall in Fargo--will be relevant to any
of you but, perhaps...
A few of us from CO, ND, KS, OK are planning a session on Sensitive
Issues in Museums in reaction to a teacher getting fired after
leading her field trip group past nudes in an art museum. We know
that "naked artwork" is not the only issue that audiences can find
offense with in museums!
We're asking those from institutions everywhere to please take a few
minutes and fill out a table/questionnaire which I'll provide. We're
hoping that by exploring ways that we all interpret and problem-solve
regarding sensitive areas and even unusual visitor interactions that
our institutions cover, all visitors can be better served and all
museum educators can be enlightened.
Please contact me directly if you can help with this effort!
Thanks VERY much,
Sheryl Kippen, Education Coordinator
City of Greeley Museums
