Journal of Museum Education, v34 n1 p69-78 Spr 2009
ArtsConnectEd is a Web site that is the product of a ten-year partnership between the Minneapolis Institute of Arts and the Walker Art Center, bringing together online the collections of the two museums specifically for K-12 teachers and students in Minnesota and beyond. This article describes the history of the partnership and important lessons learned along the way. The article will also include information about a redesign of ArtsConnectEd currently underway, illustrating how the partnership has attempted to keep pace with the changes in technology that challenge both museum educators and K-12 teachers.
