How do we create museum experiences addressing serious societal issues that are meaty (do justice to complex topics), meaningful (provoke deep reflection, dialogue, and even constructive action taking), AND magnetic (draw many visitors, who have competing options for their time)? Join leaders in the museum field who’ve taken on this challenge in a discussion of three diverse, trail-blazing exhibitions: the Skirball Cultural Center’s “A Path Appears: Transforming Lives, Creating Opportunity,” the Oakland Museum of California’s Cannabis exhibition, and the San Diego Museum of Man’s exhibition “Cannibalism: Myth and Reality.”
