The Nasher Museum joins art museums Across North America to celebrate the 9th annual Art Museum Day with free admission to all. An initiative of the Association of Art Museum Directors (AAMD), Art Museum Day gathers hundreds of institutions from across North America to recognize the arts and the important role that art museums play in their communities.
The theme for Art Museum Day 2018 is "Hyperconnected Museums," a recognition of the many ways in which museums serve as central points of connectivity within their communities, both online and in person.
Art Museum Day recognizes that museums are often important civic anchors, offering inspiring and educational experiences in ways that make towns, cities and regions better places for everyone who lives and works there. Hyperconnected Museums also serve as engines for the creative economy, tapping the human creativity embedded in works of art—whether thousands of years old or as recent as 2018—to inspire new ideas and ways of thinking.
