A Handbook for Academic Museums: Beyond Exhibitions and Education

New book.

Academic museums share a unique mandate: they are partners in education. As such, they have evolved in tandem – and not always easily – with their parent organizations. They can often pursue their missions in innovative ways, address controversial topics, produce unorthodox exhibitions, and have the freedom to experiment. But they operate within a challenging administrative structure – a two-tier environment in which operations, planning, governance, administration, financial support, and fundraising can all become more complex.

Donn Zaretsky, of the Art Law Blog, has a chapter on issues regarding donor intent in the Fisk-O’Keeffe litigation.
