National Museum of American Jewish History, Philadelphia, PA
RAMSA Partner Daniel Lobitz will take part in the panel discussion "Driving Principles of Museum Design: Civic Participation and Curatorial Responsibility" at the Mid-Atlantic Association of Museum's 8th annual symposium.
Urban museums share goals of inviting physical presence, programmatic openness to the community, and curatorial responsibility. Presenting the Museum for African Art as a case study, Mr. Lobitz and representatives from the Museum will describe the design of a new museum that will display, preserve, and interpret important art and at the same time serve as a gathering place for a vibrant local and global cultural community.
Joining Mr. Lobitz on the panel will be the Museum's Deputy Director & Chief Operating Officer, Kenita Lloyd; Curator for Contemporary Art, Lisa Binder; and Director of Development & Theater Programs, Marietta Ulacia.
