What do yarnbombing, virtual Owney (our favorite taxidermied dog), and kimchi tacos all have in common with the city of Boston wanting to tax museums? They are all featured in the Center for the Future of Museum's TendsWatch report for 2012!
Every year AAM's Center for the Future of Museums releases a report, highlighting one or more trends that museums will be confronting in the future . . . or even today. This year, they identified seven trends to think about. Some are threats to museums, while others are clearly opportunities.
We encourage you to download and read the report. It is valuable food for thought as you think about what may affect your museum in the coming days, months, and years.
