Endowment for the position of Head of Museum Interpretation.

The High Museum of Art is requesting a Challenge Grant in the amount of $300,000 to endow the position of Head of Museum Interpretation. The 2005 expansion more than doubles the Museum's size to 312,000 square feet. With the expansion, the Museum reinstalled its collections and incorporated a variety of interpretive strategies. The Head of Museum Interpretation position, inaugurated December 2004, plays a seminal role in exhibition planning from concept development for exhibition storylines to the execution of interpretive plans. For the High to fulfill its responsibility to the Southeast as a source of quality humanities activities and to become a more appealing destination for a growing audience, staff must continue to work collaboratively to develop innovative interpretive tools for visitors. The Head of Museum Interpretation partners with curators and designers to enhance the High's ability to share its rich humanities themes through its collections and exhibitions.
