Wandering Down the "Don't Touch" Line
MARCH 21, 2012
In the history gallery, we have some blended props and artifacts, and it's rarely clear what is and is not ok to touch. We do have friendly gallery hosts, but not every hour of the day. I am unwilling to adopt standard strategies of security guards and cases everywhere--both of which I believe introduce an inhospitable environment to engaging with artworks and with other people. The Milwaukee Art Museum has a video explaining do's and don'ts of the museum for children.
