SOLD OUT: Creating Compelling Exhibitions: From Gallery to Gigabyte
This event has sold out but we will be organizing two more in the coming year.
Have you found yourself needing to get an exhibition online but without any budget? Come learn about Omeka, the free and open-source platform for creating complex narratives and sharing rich collections. Designed at George Mason University for museums, libraries, and archives, this software is a cost effective way to turn your digital assets into public interpretation. In this seminar we will evaluate sites that use Omeka, compare it to other online exhibition tools, and learn the basics. Bring a laptop with a dozen or so digitized works and you will build your own online exhibition.
The seminar will be led by Anne Helmreich, Senior Program Officer at the Getty Foundation. Before coming to the Foundation, Anne was Associate Professor of Art History and Director of the Baker-Nord Center for the Humanities at Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, Ohio, where she taught museums studies as well as art history.
The seminar will take place at The Huntington on September 26 (3:30 PM 7:30 PM) and September 27 (9:00 AM 3:00 PM). The $55.00 registration covers both days and dinner on Thursday, and continental breakfast and lunch on Friday. Please bring your own laptop.
This is the second in a series of seminars supported by IMLS grant "Exhibiting Skills: Exhibition Development for Informal Educators." For more information and for a register form, contact Rachel Vourlas Schacht at firstname.lastname@example.org.
