This is your reminder that the DeCordova Sculpture Park and Museum is hosting not one but two fantastic professional development events next week. Everyone should try to make at least one of them!

First up is on Wednesday, June 6. The NEMA Young and Emerging Professionals and the Greater Boston Museum Educators’ Roundtable are co-sponsoring a book discussion group of Identity and the Museum Visitor Experience, by John Falk, and – most excitingly – Falk himself will be joining in by Skype.

Networking for the event is from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m., and the discussion group itself is from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. To RSVP, email Emily Silet – esilet[at]decordova[dot]org.

Then on Thursday, June 7 is the next installment of the fabulous Drinking About Museums series. I’ve copied the text right over from Ed Rodley’s blog:

We’re continuing our ambitious agenda of museum visits followed by drinking, and this month, we’re moving out into the ‘burbs, this time to Lincoln, MA, and the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum.  Their new Gary Webb show will be up and our hostess, Jennifer Schmitt  is hoping we might do a bit of  brainstorming about how deCordova might employ digital technologies in their future plans. Bring your thinking caps!

We’ll be at deCordova at 4:30PM looking for you.  DM me (@erodley) or Jenn (@bantryhill) if you get lost or delayed.

Afterwards, we will adjourn to The Colonial Inn in Concord for refreshments. It’s a short drive from deCordova, so leave yourself transit time. If you can’t join us for the museum part, come meet us in Concord! Burgers and beer will be had and more conversation will follow!
