Kimberly Crowell, a second-year museum studies student, recently presented at the Southeastern Museums Conference (SEMC) during the Spotlight on Student Research session. Chosen from students throughout the southeastern United States, this session highlighted the excellent work and research being done by graduate students. Crowell spoke about her work starting Access Art, an event designed to make art museums accessible for audiences with visual disabilities.
“Presenting about this subject led me to connect with other museum professionals and to exchange ideas with them about making museums more accessible for all,” says Crowell. “I would definitely recommend attending the SEMC conference because it is an excellent way to network with other museum professionals and to learn about current issues in our field.”
