CALL FOR PROPOSALS
Building Museums™ Symposium 2008
February 28-March 1, 2007
The Mid-Atlantic Association of Museums (MAAM) is pleased to announce fourth annual Building Museums™ Symposium in Washington, D.C., February 28-March 1, 2008. The event will be hosted at some of Washington’s most prestigious museums—the Smithsonian’s Donald W. Reynolds Center for American Art and Portraiture, a second location to be announce shortly and George Washington’s Mount Vernon Estate for Day 3.
MAAM is seeking proposals for sessions that will engage museum
professionals, architects, planners, and other technical experts in a dynamic exchange of ideas about key issues for museum building projects. Symposium participants will enjoy opportunities to meet and learn from the professionals impacting museum construction projects today. Program content
will reflect museums of various sizes, disciplines, budgets,
collections-orientation, and scope of building projects.
Building Museums Symposium 2008 is organized under three interrelated themes:
* Day 1: Vision (planning your building project),
* Day 2: Implementation (making your vision a reality), and
* Day 3: Sustainability (“life after opening the doors”)
Students and professionals from various areas of expertise related to museum building projects are invited to participate. If you are interested in submitting a proposal, please complete the form available at:
no later than October 15, 2007.
