Arts, sciences and humanities build healthier, more livable, vital communities. They are essential to a strong education system. They contribute enormously to our economy.
How have art museums been affected by the recent economic slump? How must art museums evolve to attract new visitors and supporters in the 21st Century? These are just some of the questions that I asked tonight’s guests on Inquiry: DENNIS C. KOIS, Director of the Decordova Sculpture Park and Museum and NICHOLAS CAPASSO, Senior Curator at the Decordova Sculpture Park and Museum. Kois and Capasso talk about the considerable challenges of presenting cutting edge contemporary art to a public that may be largely unfamiliar with the work and the real need for better art education in our schools.
