The blog has been quiet lately.
In the past month my job has changed drastically: I’m in a new department with a new team and I’ve been assigned some exciting projects. During this transition I’ve had to adjust my “free time”/writing schedule and focus on research. Now, with a full month under my belt, and playing catch up where necessary – I’m working my way back to the blog.
All the while, I have been busily visiting museums as my schedule permits.
- The Tenement Museum
- 9/11 Memorial
- The Metropolitan Museum of Art
- American Museum of Natural History
- New York Historical Society
- Detroit Historical Society
- Detroit Institute of Arts
- Wexner Center for the Arts
- National Museum of the United States Air Force
- Cincinnati Museum Center
What else is new?
Also, I’ve partnered with Museum Blogger Jenni Fuchs (@jennifuchs) at Museum 140 for Museum Blog/gers Day on Twitter. Next week is Museum140’s 3rd birthday, and they wanted to do something special to mark the occasion. Jenni reached out to me after receiving some feedback regarding interest in highlighting museum blogs/the bloggers behind them and the partnership was born. So mark your calendars for Wednesday, March 19 (a week from today), and we’ll be chatting on Twitter about museum blogs and bloggers ALL DAY – sounds awesome, right?!
