Touring Strategies for Challenging Art (2017 Montreal)

Denver Art Museum, Denver, CO

The Denver Art Museum's (DAM) commitment to contemporary art and the practice of combining historical and cutting-edge art throughout the permanent collections has prepared DAM docents to address the unique challenges of presenting modern and contemporary art to museum visitors. This Breakout Session will address touring techniques for abstract, provocative and electronic art and how these art forms can be used to engage teen and at-risk youth audiences. Handouts will be provided and a group discussion at the end of the presentation will give participants a chance to share successful touring strategies they have used.

Presenters: Carol Hamilton, Marty Corren and Nikki Tomkinson
