All NEH on the Road exhibitions include venue orientations at the beginning of each tour or tour extension
Last month, we traveled to lovely Evanston, Illinois for a venue orientation with Spirited: Prohibition in America. This popular exhibition was re-launched for a five-year extension, and we invited all venues booking in its new run to join us in Evanston and learn about all facets of Spirited. This trip was generously sponsored by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), and we were joined by NEH Senior Program Officer Chrissy Cortina. Our venues join us at little to no cost on their end, and this is part of every exhibition we present.
Orientation lasts two days and includes program background information, a curatorial overview, a first look at the exhibition, installation and logistics presentations, and marketing, reporting, and advocacy content. Our cohort in Evanston got to participate in an engagement ideas workshop after an overview of the programming guide from our educator, Stephanie Seber. All venues have time with NEH on the Road Registar Michelle Wolf, who demonstrates aspects of installation and packing.
Orientation is one of the many perks about booking an NEH on the Road exhibition. As a nonprofit program, we are here to serve you! Please let us know if you want any details about our program or any of our exhibitions by emailing MoreArt (at) maaa.org.
