Museum Education Division Report

Published in NAEA News - April/May 2017

Welcome Spring! This article is a perfect opportunity to reflect on the amazing 2017 Annual Convention in New York City.

Like me, I hope most of you who attended are in that sweet spot where you are still invigorated by everything you learned and eager to put new ideas into action.

The week began with the 31st Annual Museum Education Preconference— Diversity & Inclusion: Art Museum Educators as Levers of Change. Michelle Grohe, Director-Elect, along with an amazing team of museum educators created a challenging and thought-provoking day for all who attended. Through a keynote talk, gallery teaching experiences, breakout sessions, and a culminating reception, attendees explored the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Arts and Design, New Museum, The Whitney Museum of American Art, The Frick Collection, The Guggenheim, the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art, and the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum, among others. On behalf of the division, I want to thank Michelle, her fabulous team of educators, and our hosting museums for putting on such a successful day that encouraged us all to ask ourselves, “How Can I Be a Lever of Change?
– Emily Holtrop, Past Division Director
