Focus: We will be focusing on applying what we discussed at November’s meeting to our site visit to the Ukrainian Museum- what does “international understanding” mean for museums specifically, what is necessary to promote these goals within the museum’s programs and exhibitions, and does the museum meet these goals/how so. There are a few beautiful exhibitions currently up that will help spark our discussions!
