Recently, the importance of the interaction of art museums with their communities and the public has gained more recognition. This fall, we will pay particular attention to the people involved as founders, trustees, staff, financial contributors, critics, advocates and audiences, and their impact on the highly varied character and development of distinctive institutions.
