The Museum Group
TMG, a consortium of senior museum consultants, offers museums and cultural institutions distinct advantages. As independent consultants, we help museums identify innovative solutions and strategies for every part of their operations. As a group of like-minded colleagues, we serve our clients from a base of shared knowledge, experience, and support.
We're also committed to thinking, conversation, and debate about the complex issues that affect museums today. In our individual consulting practices, at annual gatherings of national and regional museum associations, and in the wider museum field we promote an open, lively exchange of ideas.
Some highlights from a busy fall…
Carol Bossert has a new online radio show The Museum Life on VoiceAmerica.com, discussing current issues in museums. You can listen live every Friday, 10 a.m. Eastern on the Variety Channel or listen to archived shows here.
Ellen Hirzy edited the Dallas Museum of Art's e-publication DallasSITES: A Developing Art Scene, Postwar to Present, which uses open-source software from the Getty Foundation's Online Scholarly Catalogue Initiative (OSCI).
Alan Friedman is the author of the commentary Learning: A Holistic View in Education Week.
Members of The Museum Group traveled to Dallas in November to visit with colleagues at the Dallas Museum of Art and the Perot Museum of Nature and Science. Other highlights were The Sixth Floor Museum, Dallas Arboretum, and the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum. Thank you to our hosts Marianna Adams and Anne Bergeron and the museum staff who were so gracious with their time and insights.
Sheila Grinell has announced her retirement from active consulting. We wish her wonderful new adventures! And Paul Richard is shifting his focus to working with disabled veterans, helping them to express themselves through the arts. Both will become associate members of TMG.
