In an increasingly diverse, divided, and complex world, how are the responsibilities of museum educators changing, and how are they staying the same? The director of the National Gallery of Art discusses how museums can remain relevant, serve the public, harness technology, and fuel curiosity through education programs and audience engagement. The Samuel H. Kress Lecture in Museum Education is intended to further the study, understanding, and practice of museum education.

This lecture will be followed by a reception. We hope you’ll be able to join in the conversations following this year’s lecture.
