Bringing Objects & Artifacts to Life (Webinar)
February 27, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
Getting your audience interested in objects can be difficult! Museums Unbound brings you their favorite tools to help interpret objects and artifacts. From discovering new aspects of the same old artifact to getting a whole classroom talking about what’s in front of them, these tools are easy to use in galleries, at cultural sites, with artwork, or in the midst of ancient ruins. Presenters Jodi Larson and Hannah Kellogg will talk about how to get up close and personal with objects, how to look at your museum’s collections in new and non-traditional ways, and how to use the artifacts in your museum to tell a story and create a social experience.
Jodi Larson & Hannah Kellogg are part of the consultancy Museums Unbound, and together they’ve been in the museum world for nearly three decades. They’ve worked in history museums and living history sites, archaeological sites, open-air venues, science centers, craft museums, art galleries, nature centers, art museums, and once on an island full of bears as a park ranger. Somewhere along the way, they both Bachelors and Masters degrees in Public History, Museum Studies, and History, studied nonprofit management, got certified by the National Association of Interpretation, and founded Museums Unbound. Jodi and Hannah aim to change the way we change the world and have worked on three continents with museums and cultural sites of all shapes and sizes.
Jodi is the Programs & Education Specialist at the Lake Jackson Historical Association in Lake Jackson, TX where she overseas programs and events at two historic sites, as well as a traditional museum. Hannah’s work is anything but traditional, as she is the Site Manager of the Sauer-Beckmann Living History Farm at Lyndon B. Johnson State Park where she does it all–including milking the cow.
