Collaborations between organizations, institutions and museums

During the past 5 years we have worked closely with a number of organizations, institutions and museums to highlight aspects of our collection. In doing so we have assisted in the development of their strategies for broadening participation.

We Have worked with several institutions such as: Smithsonian Institution, Cornell Art Museum, Foosaner Art Museum, Coral Springs Museum of Art, Fort Myers Art Center, Museum of Arts & Sciences, Miami-Dade County Public Schools and Florida International University on research projects directly concerned with artists from our collection. We are constantly in demand to develop work with a number of nationally and internationally recognized organizations. This work is at its most effective as live and experiential, as exhibitions, small displays, web based interactions, family or children's events, scholarly symposia and publications. We are interested in initiating ways of communicating and developing ideas with diverse audiences and artists around temporary exhibitions, collection displays and public events.

As an integral part of past collaborations we have offered exhibition, illustrated lectures, the sharing of contextual materials. We encourage opportunities for audiences to network with artists and curators. We work on a continuous basis with museums building innovative projects around audience development, site co-ordination and archive intervention.
