MS 244: Traveling Exhibitions
Instructor: Lin Nelson-Mayson
Aug 5-30, 2013
Location: Online at <URL:>

Description: Sharing an exciting exhibition with other museums
expands your museum's reach and impact. When and how do you plan for
this undertaking? How do you manage the exhibition once it has left
your facility? How do you ensure a successful exhibition at each
venue? Your questions--the more the better--facilitate successful
exhibition development and touring. Traveling exhibits, though, are
a two-way street. Sometimes you are the lender, sometimes you are
the borrower. How do you find and manage interesting exhibits
created by other institutions in order to expand your museum's
offerings? In this online course, learn how to find interesting
exhibits developed by other museums and plan for your exhibition
from idea to on the road and beyond.

Logistics: Participants in Traveling Exhibitions work through
sections on their own. Materials and resources include online
literature, slide lectures and dialog between students and the
instructor through online forums.

Traveling Exhibitions runs four weeks. To learn more about the
