If you’re thinking of visiting New York or Washington, D.C. any time soon, check out the exhibition reviews by all of the museum studies students from Bank Street College and George Washington University. They’ve been fanning out to museums throughout those cities over the last several weeks and together have posted nearly 50 reviews. Thanks to their observations and critiques, we have a record of some temporary exhibitions like the Whitney’s Glen Ligon: AMERICA and fresh takes on some exhibitions and experiences like the Tenement Museum. (At right is an image by Amanda Salles from MOMA’s Looking at Music 3.0.)
Thank you to all of the students for sharing your experiences and your thinking. With your newly honed critical skills, we hope you’ll continue to contribute even when your classes end. And thanks also to Paul Orselli, Kathy McLean, Dana Allen-Greil, and Carrie Kotcho, who encouraged their students to share their reviews with the ExhibitFiles community.
