Building Opportunities for Students in the Museum
How are museums encouraging young people to consider creative careers? The Guggenheim shares back findings from collaborative student projects led in partnership with the City University of New York and Rutgers University. Through academic partnerships, a virtual student cohort created an audio series that launched on the Guggenheim’s Digital Guide on the Bloomberg Connects app, and students designed and printed an activity booklet distributed to over 500 museum visitors at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York. The Guggenheim Education Department welcomes collaboration, innovation, and offers ways for young adults to cultivate deeper relationships with the museum community.
