on select objects in the museum¹s collection to add to the existing*What is
a Masterpiece? An Interactive Tour of World Art *program. Fellows will
identify content sources in a variety of media, secure rights for existing
content and develop and select new content. Fellows will work with
community resources and identify and interview artists and scholars to
contribute to the understanding and interpretation of each object.****

This is the second phase of the interactive museum interpretation project.
The first phase, funded by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library
Services, *What is A Masterpiece? *is one of the first art museum programs

menu of diverse content offerings.****

Exhibitions in tandem with the Director of Education, who serve as
supervisors and mentors throughout the term of the fellowship.****
