Jame Anderson will present a public lecture at Wake Forest titled: “Ready, Aim, Build: Creating Museums in the 21st Century.”
What it takes to establish a new museum in the 21st Century? Who does it take to plan, develop, design, and build your museum project? This talk will be of interest to Cultural Heritage & Preservation Studies minors and others interested in public history, museum professions, and museum studies theory.
