Hilferty has had a strong presence in Kentucky museums for decades. Did you know that we helped create the Kentucky Horse Park and design the Kentucky Derby Museum?
Hilferty staff will be presenting at the Kentucky Museum and Heritage Alliance Conference in Louisville in June. Their innovative session, “Off the Shelf,” will use its name literally and figuratively. “Museums” come in all shapes and sizes – from volunteer operated to behemoth corporate institutions, in historic buildings or glossy ultra-modern galleries. What can we learn from and share with each other, and what can we beg, borrow, and steal from other fields? What can you get “off the shelf” to enhance what you have– or how can you re-think what is already on your shelves? This session will share a snapshot of today’s best projects in the field, with practical takeaways on how you can try it at home.
