Using California Continued as a case study, this session explores how 21st century museums, (1) as gathering place for discussion, conversation, and debate can (2) broaden their audience to share their historic collections in relevant ways. Session presenters will focus on the museum’s multi-media partnership with KCETLink TV to co-produce Tending the Wild, a series featured in multiple iterations in the California Continued Human/Nature gallery, on-line, and for broadcast.
Located in beautiful Griffith Park, the Autry features world-class galleries filled with Native American art and artifacts, film memorabilia, historic firearms, paintings, and more.

The Autry is dedicated to enriching the experience of all visitors through thoughtful, entertaining, and engaging classes, programs, and activities.
