The first in a three-part series, this Wallace-commissioned report finds arts museums looking to attract a more diverse mix of visitors by re-presenting their permanent collections and building ties to their audiences’ neighborhoods. Careful research and informed planning helped these efforts.
The report stems from the Museum Collections Accessibility Initiative. This effort supported 29 fine arts museums as they sought to expand the roles they play in their communities. The initiative was launched in the 1990s by a predecessor to The Wallace Foundation.
