MIDEA members are constantly working hard to create interesting digital media projects for their museums. In this MIDEA Connect webinar, we shine a spotlight on the video projects completed this year by three MIDEA member organizations.  Please join us on Wednesday, December 12 at 10am PT / 12pm CT/ 1pm ET (check for local time) for the MIDEA Member Video Project Showcase to see some of the exciting projects that your colleagues completed in 2012.

About the Webinar
The project leaders from the Amarillo Museum of Art, Amon Carter Museum of American Art, and Artpace San Antonio will discuss their experiences tackling video projects involving teachers, artists, and collections. It will be a great opportunity to learn from your colleagues, provide feedback about their projects, and get inspired by their work for your museum's next video project.

Artpace has been exploring how a contemporary art institution, Artpace San Antonio, can use iPads to engage audiences through an innovative collaboration between artists, educators, curators, and other museum departments to create content that will inspire conversation and enhance the learning experience.

Farm Security Administration Photographs from the 1930s
presented by Arlette Klaric

The Amarillo Museum of Art produced digitized content from film footage of a 1978 symposium organized by the Museum. The symposium featured original photographers who participated in the Farm Security Administration (FSA) program to document American lives during the Great Depression. This footage offers an archival complement to the Museum's collection of more than 120 FSA images by leading documentary photographers of the period. Learn more about the exhibition.
