At the Heart of It: Museums and Place-Based Study in Rural Communities
Villenueve, Pat; Martin-Hamon, Amanda
Journal of Museum Education, v32 n3 p251-260 Fall 2007
Is your museum on the periphery of your community or at the heart of what matters? This article provides a rationale and model for situating your museum at the heart of the community through place-based study. Drawing on an interdisciplinary project in Kansas entitled Seeing Our Community with New Eyes, the authors provide pedagogical options and recommendations for museum educators. Examples provide a place to begin thinking about how your museum can play a vital role in the community. (Contains 16 notes.)
