Join us on Tuesday, March 12 at 2 p.m. in the Science Museum auditorium for an in-depth discussion with current Community Curator Cole Redhorse Taylor. Cole will discuss his display, the influences for his artwork, and how 'community' plays a role in curation. Free and open to the public; no museum admission required.
How can museums create an environment where community members feel empowered to tell their own stories?
The items in the Science Museum of Minnesota’s collection originate from places all around the world. Through the Community Curators program, museum staff and community members collaborate to access and engage with objects in the collections in meaningful ways to foster a more community-driven practice of storytelling and interpretation.
Through this program, community artists, educators, and organizers select and interpret items from museum collections alongside their own work. The items will be featured in an on-site display in the museum lobby for the duration of three months, and each curator will facilitate a conversation about the selected objects and their meaning to their cultural community.
