The Museum, the City, and the University
Boston Art Museum Directors in Discussion

This panel brings together five distinguished museum directors to discuss their leadership of major cultural institutions in urban and university settings and to share personal perspectives on their work. The directors and the moderator address questions about the role of museums in debates about public and private support for the humanities and arts; in research and learning endeavors, including creative efforts by living artists; and in conversations about citizenship, identity, and diversity.
