What would Erin and I do for love? Freeze, apparently (it was really, really cold and windy getting this pic)! We hear the weather is going to warm up this weekend, so it should be perfect—the Wikipedia Loves Art Brooklyn Museum meetup is scheduled for this Saturday. Come to Target First Saturday (2/7/09 5-11pm) and when you get to the lobby, look for our table with this sign. It should be a great opportunity for us all to say hello. And, hey, if you register in advance and bring your camera we’ll make sure you have a box of Conversation Hearts with your name on it!
Shelley Bernstein is the former Vice Director of Digital Engagement & Technology at the Brooklyn Museum where she spearheaded digital projects with public participation at their center. In the most recent example—ASK Brooklyn Museum—visitors ask questions using their mobile devices and experts answer in real time. She organized three award-winning projects—Click! A Crowd-Curated Exhibition, Split Second: Indian Paintings, GO: a community-curated open studio project—which enabled the public to participate in the exhibition process.
Shelley was named one of the 40 Under 40 in Crain's New York Business and her work on the Museum's digital strategy has been featured in the New York Times.
In 2016, Shelley joined the staff at the Barnes Foundation as the Deputy Director of Digital Initiatives and Chief Experience Officer.
