The Post-COVID Courier Part 2: The Full Chicago
Couriers are the moment's big unanswered question sitting on the tips of the tongue of museums all across the world. We dared to tackle it in December, but ended up with an onslaught of questions and ran out of time. As a result, we return to you on January 19th with a special "Ask Me Anything" episode designed specifically to answer audience questions directly from our listeners. Bring your thoughts, worries, and comments for our panelist and come prepared to participate with your colleagues in the chat.
To help address your questions, we brought in two experts from the great windy city:
- Cayetana Castillo, the Executive Director Collections and Loans at the Art Institute of Chicago, who gave a widely viewed presentation last year in conjunction with the Association of Art Museum Directors (AAMD)
- Tiffany Charles, the Head of Exhibitions Registration at the Field Museum in Chicago, and who also serves on the AAM Traveling Exhibitions Network Task Force.
Join us Tuesday, January 19th at 1:00 p.m. EST. #ARCSchat
