PUSSY HAT, giclee print of digital art, by Brooke Jana from Focal Point 2018
Juror: Lynn Russell, National Gallery of Art
Lynn Russell completed her Ph.D. coursework in art history at the University of Delaware with a specialty in Northern Baroque Painting. Today she is head of the education division at the National Gallery of Art in Washington. She believes that one of the main issues we’re facing now and into the future, both as education departments and museums, is how to advance the public value and potential social impact of our institutions. The more we talk with one another and our audiences, the more effectively positioned we will be to make success of our work. Focusing on the needs of visitors, how can we help create a memorable learning experience for them? Museums are places for conversations. We need to encourage them.
