Exclusive CPD Interview: LACMA's Director on Youth and Art in the Digital Age

In this segment of CPD's extended interview with Michael Govan, LACMA's director talks about how the museum uses social media as a two-way communication tool to connect with the audience. He emphasizes that the digital age cannot replace our needs, as human beings, to physically go to places, experience it and explore spaces and objects. He is pleased to see that LACMA has become “that place” where people take their Facebook profile pictures and that so many young people view LACMA as a venue to produce and present their own art projects and digital media projects.

Other segments in CPD's interview with Govan include: Art and Cultural Diplomacy in Los Angeles and Futbol: The Beautiful Game.
