For Arts Groups Closed During Shutdown, Online Content is a Lifeline Worth Keeping

Last Thursday evening, Princeton University Art Museum Director James Steward delivered a public lecture online. A total of 965 people participated, more than the museum would ever be able to squeeze into its auditorium. Steward said:

“There is a set of outreach opportunities that is now possible because of the digital efforts we’ve made. Why would we not try to sustain them? Going forward, it has to be both. Once you open the door and discover that people not just locally, but in geographically remote areas are actually hungry for your content, it presents a wonderful opportunity.”
