Lecture by Tsugumi Maki Joiner ('94) in the Handwerker Gallery Monday 11/18 at 4:00PM


Contributed by Paul Wilson

Tsugumi Maki Joiner, Ithaca College alum and head of gallery planning at the MFA Boston, will give a lecture titled "The Expanding Museum: Master Plan Expansion and the Renovation Projects of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston."

In this lecture celebrating the new art history concentration in museum studies, Maki Joiner will talk about the practical and conceptual dimensions of recent expansion projects at this world famous museum.  These include the opening of a new American wing in 2010.  The wing significantly reshapes the story of "American" art from one previously focused on art by Euro-Americans in the United States to one that emphasizes art made by a diverse array of artists from across the Americas.
