Introducing RE/ VIEW, an online program discussion series to address reopening and reimagining museums, art spaces and institutions across the country. Understanding that this crisis has upended previous conditions and revealed vulnerabilities in how we exhibit, present and view art, we invite leaders across our field to strategize for the future. This event is open to members and non-members with a $15 suggested donation.

Join ArtTable for a conversation on staffing, leadership and unions with two of the main organizers behind the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s recently founded workers’ union. We’ll hear from Nicole Elizabeth Cook, Ph.D., Program Manager for Graduate Academic Partnerships and Sarah Shaw, Museum Educator and Coordinator of the Education Resource Center at the Philadelphia Museum of Art on organizing during this pandemic, the challenges that unions are facing during this time and how unions are shifting operations to support members as museums plan to reopen. 

This will provide an opportunity to hear directly from Sarah and Nicole on building a union and supporting workers at the PMA, while addressing issues related to staffing and reopening. How are museums prioritizing operations in order to work with smaller teams? What departments are we seeing dissolve and what is being prioritized during this time?

In her role as Resource Center Coordinator, she works closely with classroom teachers, teaching artists, pre-service teachers and other educators to integrate visual arts into all kinds of teaching and learning.
