2018 WMA Annual Meeting

Join us at the Western Museums Association’s 2018 annual meeting in Tacoma, Washington

Session: Beyond the Plexiglas® Ceiling: A Discussion of Women’s Roles in Exhibits

Session date + time: October 22nd - 11am-12:15pm

Level It will be part of a panel discussion with:

SuSan Chan, Exhibition Designer/Project Manager, Washington State Historical Society

Lynette Martin, Exhibition Designer/Preparator, Museum of Glass

Claire Johnson, Owner, Art Exhibition Services

Elizabeth Mauro, Owner, Art Installation

“The exhibits industry has been traditionally dominated by men.  Women in this field are presented with unique challenges—and opportunities—for career development and advancement.  How do women avoid marginalization in the field to find motivation and support in an area where they have been underrepresented?  This facilitated dialogue run by experienced, diverse female museum professionals provides resources for networking and descriptions of real-life situations.  Confidentiality will be respected in this discussion.  All are welcome.”

We hope to see you there!
