Join us at the newly renovated UC Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive.

Then we'll drop in at the Reading Room and Art Lab, a space dedicated to an evolving series of hands-on projects.

Hearst Museum of Anthropology, UC Berkeley

Join us for a special sneak peak into the new gallery space to learn how the exhibition and interpretation team had to rethink their entire space to tell the story around their opening exhibition.

7:00 - 8:00: Join us as Strada Cafe with Adam to continue the conversation!

January 19th, 5:30 (limited to 15)

With its expansion in 2016, SFMOMA introduced three new Interpretive Galleries--permanent spaces devoted to digital interpretation. Cross-departmental teams collaborated to conceive and design the spaces, and craft media and stories that aim to demystify the artworks on view. Staff from the museum's Interpretive Media team will give a tour of the Interpretive Galleries and provide insights into the ideas and goals behind each space, and some of the lessons learned.

5:30 - 6:30: Special tour of the Interpretive Galleries.
6:30 - 7:30: Join us for a drink nearby to continue the conversation!
