#AMA (Ask Me Anything) Q&A with American Art Curator Stephanie Heydt
Online Event: Monday, June 1
Every two weeks, The High Museum of Art will post a new “Ask Me Anything” series featuring museum staff; Stephanie Heydt, Margaret and Terry Stent Curator of American Art, will host the next Q&A on Tuesday, May 26.
The goal of the High’s new digital initiative is to create a personal connection between museum staff and its virtual audiences. Users submit questions in advance, from the practical to the personal, and the participating staff member's answers are archived on the High’s Instagram. The first few features highlighted the High's curatorial team and the museum is now expanding their Q&A style forum to invite other types of staff -- including recent #AMA host Danielle Kiser, Manager of Exhibitions -- to partake in the new initiative, giving audiences an opportunity to examine other career paths in the museum world.
