Museums are at the heart of our cultural lives: they are where we go to learn and gather collectively. But the pandemic has restricted access to these spaces, and national conversations around equity are asking museums to reckon with where their collections came from, who they represent, and who has access to them. Join Elizabeth Merritt (American Alliance of Museums), Chevy Humphrey (Museum of Science and Industry), and Lisa Yun Lee (Public Housing Museum) for a conversation about how museums will shift and change as we move into a new stage of the pandemic and come back together in public spaces.
This program is part of Chicago Humanities Festival’s What’s Next? series.
