Did you know that there are more museums in the U.S. than McDonalds and Starbucks combined?
Drexel University Assistant Professor and Research Director Neville Vakharia recently mapped all of the museums in the country in an effort to help museum leaders, advocates and researchers understand the role of museums in their communities.
Professor Vakharia will be joined by a panel of local museum professionals to discuss the research and begin to explore its implications for the Central New York Arts community. Those in attendance will also learn about new online tools and mobile apps currently in development. The event is sponsored by Le Moyne College’s Arts Administration Program.
The talk will take place Wednesday, March 2 at 6:30 p.m. at Le Moyne’s W. Carroll Coyne Center for the Performing Arts, 1419 Salt Springs Rd., Syracuse. Admission is free.
