What We May Be: Art Museums and the Implications of Special Programs

Stemming from a colloquium on special programs in museum education, this collection of nine essays explores new directions in museum programming for specialized audiences. Educators from art museums across the United States describe initiatives developed at their respective institutions, while incorporating ethics, sociology, and reflection into their discussions. This volume is the first in the What We May Be series, a new collection of texts focused on best practices and new thinking in museum education.
