Last week, Tyler Green posted some suggestions for museum blogs, which is always nice to read – it’s important to take a step back every once in awhile and give your blog a good hard look. And his posts came at a perfect time – Maria (on the Contemporary’s side of the blog) and I already had a meeting scheduled to discuss some new ideas. Tyler’s suggestions reinforced exactly what we were thinking.One thing we often hear that people like about our blog is the fact that we’re two very different institutions contributing posts on the same page. It gives readers a chance to see the differences and similarities in our approaches to art and museum-related topics. We thought it would make sense to highlight this even more – so cue a new series of posts we decided to call “Two Takes One Issue” (get it? two buildings one blog? We’re also really clever around here…).
This series will take a certain issue, news article, administrative approach, curatorial practice, what-have-you, and have someone related to that issue at each of our institutions write about it from their perspective. We’re hoping it will not only emphasize our unique qualities, but also raise questions and start conversations. Expect the first posts coming soon….and let us know if there’s a topic you’d like us to address!
