Museum Exhibit Design (Fall) and Exhibit Design Practices Workshop (Spring) at New York University, School of Professional Studies and Continuing Education. Since 2006.
What jump starts career changers? Two workshops in creative thinking across museum skills of research, writing, design and implementation. As an adjunct NYU instructor Todd Palmer has worked to provide orientation to the volatile context of planning and design for the contemporary museum. Individuals are guided to bring their unique insights to a changing discipline – while tapping into innate potential.
How do they impact museums? Since 2006 the courses have engaged over 100 professionals and career changers from the New York region and globally including Argentina, Spain, South Korea, Brazil, Turkey, Italy and Japan. The course invites students to create opportunities in museum exhibition design and development from the experience they bring to cultural institutions from a wide range of fields including commercial design, advertising, architecture, finance, libraries, non-profit foundations and academia.
