Publisher Comments:

Reflecting critically on the current condition of museums and their possible futures, Stephen E. Weil argues that cultural institutions need to free themselves from a fascination with technique and process to concentrate more intently on purpose. He contends that to succeed, or merely survive, a museum must be able to project clear goals that its supporting community finds of value and must demonstrate its competence to achieve those goals on a sustainable basis.

Synopsis:

The museum profession's leading theorist considers the abiliies of museums to survive and succeed in the future. Concentrating on the important function of the public in museums, Weil argues that American museums face an increasing challenge to demonstrate their ability to connect with an ever more diverse audience, and simultaneously withstand changes in government involvement.
