How Do You Determine What’s Cool and Engaging

How do you get your museum visitors to see you as cool and engaging. If I knew that answer, and could bottle it, I would be a wealthy woman. There are many in the museum community looking for the key to providing visitors that special exhibition that would catch  their interest and keep them thinking and talking about the exhibit for more than just a few minutes.

The Queensland Museum and Sciencentre in Brisbane, Australia may have found the answer. They are using “Curators of Cool.”

“Hotel Texas” opens at the Dallas Museum of Art

It has been nearly fifty years since that day in Dallas.

If you were born in the late fifties or earlier, you probably remember where you were on November 22, 1963 when you first heard that President Kennedy was shot and killed.

Few people were affected more by the shooting that day than Mark Connally. Mark’s father was John Connally, the Governor of Texas who was seriously wounded by the same shooter that day. Mark’s company, Citi Private Bank is the presenting sponsor of the Hotel Texas exhibition at the Dallas Museum of Art.

This exhibition is dedicated to the art, pulled together for the Presidents suite in Fort Worth where he and Mrs. Kennedy stayed the night before heading to Dallas.

Read more about Hotel Texas at the DMA running through September 15th.
