New Art Director at ASU Miki Garcia has plans to shake up future of art museums
May 10, 2018
Miki Garcia, formerly the executive director and chief curator of the Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara, is taking on the role of director of the ASU Art Museum. She has plans for how to push it into the future.
“I was compelled by Dr. Crow’s vision of the New American University,” Garcia says. “I’m trying to build the New American Art Museum within the New American University.”
Her model of a new art museum consists of meeting people where they are. She says it’s about disrupting the classic model of experts and passive receivers of information. The museum will be engaging and allow people to co-learn and co-create.
