Return to Program Schedule

Anne Manner-McLarty visited the NEWSEUM at the recommendation of a client, who suggested it as an outstanding example of digital media used for exhibits and storytelling. While this is surely true, Anne noted many other aspects of the visitor experience, including the quality and variety of donor recognition integrated throughout the museum. She has continued to research how these facility-based experiences were designed and implemented, and how they translate to online venues. Join Anne for a virtual tour of what's at the NEWSEUM, her critique of it and a discussion of how these "next practices" might integrate into your work.
