February 18, 2011 Community Involvement, Museums

This quote captures my feelings on museums and their role within the community:

For museums to succeed and continue to be valued by their community and supported, they have to extend value in turn and go way beyond hanging objects on the wall or putting object in display cases to… serving as conduits to build community.” – Dewey Blanton, director of strategic communications at the American Association of Museums
