last post about what any museum can learn from the Getty has drawn lots of attention (and thanks to all who retweeted and shared it). So I wanted to share another experience from my visit there because I think, in one small space, it exemplified the museum's thoughtful approach--and again, it's something that almost any museum could do, scaled to fit your own circumstances.
here. But the description--and I'm afraid this blog post--doesn't quite convey the spirit of the place which was fun without being silly, serious without being formal, planned without being overly directive, and reflective without being way too quiet.
Although not every museum has a Rubens to exhibit, we all do have beautiful, interesting or fascinating objects. And we could all create ways--and spaces-- for our visitors, no matter what age or interest, to look deeply, try something new, and enjoy themselves.
