SPRING PREVIEW MEETING
THURSDAY, JANUARY 18, 2018
 9:30AM – Noon
HERITAGE HALL, SEABURY

GUEST SPEAKER
Min Jung Kim
Director 
New Britain Museum of American Art

In the fall of 2014, we were entertained and enlightened with an outstanding presentation by the Director of the New Britain Museum of American Art, Dr. Douglas Hyland, who has since retired.  We now have the opportunity to hear an equally interesting presentation by his replacement, Min Jung Kim, as she talks about the museum's current displays and its ongoing growth.

Ms. Kim joined the museum in November 2015 as the institution’s 6th Director, bringing more than 20 years of experience in the art museum field.  She is the former Deputy Director for External Relations of the Eli and Edyth Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University, providing strategic planning and management, and establishing the operational infrastructure of the new museum. 

Previously, Ms. Kim worked at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation, New York, for more than 12 years, with a focus on a variety of international alliances and collaborative initiatives.  Between her time at Guggenheim and the Broad MSU, Ms. Kim served as Managing Director of Exhibitions and Programming at the Global Cultural Asset Management Group in New York, where she was involved in developing new museums, collections, and operating programs primarily in Asia, Europe, and the Middle East.


PREVIEW MEETING AGENDA

Based on your positive response to our experimental Fall Preview Meeting format, we will continue with the same format for the Spring Meeting.  At 9:30AM, the Presenters of our scheduled courses will be available in the Dining Hall to share information and answer questions while we socialize and imbibe in the  pastries and coffee offered by the Seabury staff.

The Presenters will wear distinctive name tags with their course title and you can seek out any Presenter of interest or simply stay put and wait until the Presenter comes to you! 

At 10:30AM, we will all adjourn to Heritage Hall for a short business meeting and to hear our guest speaker.  The meeting will conclude at noon.
