Following a successful ‘Ask a Curator’ event in 2010, experts from around the world are participating in a unique question and answer session that gives the public a chance to ask curators questions about museums and galleries.
Institutions from 29 countries will be participating, including the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, The British Museum, and the Château de Versailles. Canadian museums and galleries taking part in the event include the Art Gallery of Ontario, Canadian Museum of Nature, the Royal Ontario Museum, and the National Gallery of Canada.
The event will be hosted today on twitter, with questioners asked to use the hashtag #askacurator. Click here to follow the event on twitter.
More information is available at askacuratorday.com, including lists of the participating museums and galleries by subject (such as Tudor England, Literature, or Science), and by country.
