American Business Meets American Gothic: Professional Development in the Art Museum
Sullivan, Brendan; Morse, Annie
Journal of Museum Education, v36 n1 p69-80 Spr 2011
Professional development in the art museum setting represents an opportunity for corporate and for-profit enterprises to enhance employees' skills in observation, creative thinking, teamwork, and sensitivity in diversity. Using original works of art as a point of departure for in-depth discussion of what appears as narrative content, participants gain insight into alternative interpretations and approaches to a problem or circumstance. In all-day sessions, staff from the Art Institute and consultants from creative meeting and event space Catalyst Ranch lead clients through interactive exercises designed to be of practical use in everyday problem-solving. (Contains 4 notes.)
