Phoenix Art Museum curator wants to inspire emotion

Phoenix Art Museum’s director of curatorial affairs Gilbert Vicario takes us behind the scenes to see what goes into creating an exhibition. From deciding how to hang a piece on the wall to the precise words on the descriptor card, museum curators want to present their collection just so. Vicario share the challenges and the thought process that goes into evoking emotions for a wide audience. See more of the museum at www.phxart.org.
