MUSEUM WORLD ~










USC International Museum Institute director Selma Holo, David Wilson and artist Fred Wilson



"Education is at the heart of a museum's mission. Museums want to tell you things -- through object labels, audio tours, videos, brochures, websites and public programs. But is this really education? Not according to David Wilson, director of the Museum of Jurassic Technology (MJT). In a rousing discussion moderated by USC International Museum Institute director Selma Holo, David Wilson and artist Fred Wilson, who unearths and juxtaposes objects from museums' deep storage to uncover hidden stories, debated the place of audience, community and education in museums."
