Weekly Jobs Roundup

Here’s our weekly roundup of new jobs. As always, they go up immediately on their own page.

Drinking about Museums

The next Drinking About Museums event is taking place tomorrow, July 18, at the Boston Children’s Museum. (To clarify, the museum visit is at the Children’s Museum; the alcohol will be consumed elsewhere.)

Meet at the Children’s Museum in the lobby a little before 5:00 p.m. More details on Ed Rodley’s blog. These are terrific events that are very accessible for emerging professionals, so go, check it out!

A bit of fun: Regina Spektor, “All the Rowboats”

Trust me, this really is about art museums, despite the visual imagery. Listen to the words – she’s actually making some interesting commentary on the way art is treated in museums.

Food for Thought: Should Museums Accession lolcats?

Go and read Suse Cairns‘s fascinating exploration of native digital objects and art, and how museums can think about them and deal with them. Bonus interview with Tom Woolley, New Media Curator at the UK National Media Museum. (He’s responsible for a Life Online gallery that has a constant video of memes on it. If that’s not a cool job, I don’t know what is.)
