In The Art of Relevance (2016) by Nina Simon, relevance is the key that opens the door to an experience. For us, relevance means creating environments and experiences where people can forge connections among ideas and objects, historical context and contemporary issues, and their academic studies and social lives. To do this, we need to open the door to new experiences in the museum and collaborate with partners to connect the museum’s programs, initiatives, and collecting priorities to the intellectual inquiry and discourse on campus. With the closure and renovation of Neilson Library, we have an opportunity to provide new environments for work and study on campus. The college has developed a plan to activate the Brown Fine Arts Center atrium, which connects the museum to the Department of Art and Hillyer Art Library, as a study space for students. The museum sees this as a unique opportunity to partner with the college to connect a comfortable and engaging study and work space in the atrium with the museum. We will investigate opportunities to open the atrium entrance to the museum, modify our hours to reflect student schedules, and partner with campus groups to offer programming that connects the two spaces. 1. CONNECT ART EXPERIENCES WITH THE LIVES AND INTERESTS OF OUR COMMUNITY 2. ESTABLISH SCMA AS A PLACE FOR OPEN DIALOGUE 3. INVITE STUDENT PARTICIPATION IN THE LIFE AND WORK OF SCMA OBJECTIVES
