Cara McCarty, (LF ’05) curatorial director of the Cooper-Hewitt Museum, will be discussing the effect of museum expansion on exhibitions and the urban experience in “Unlimited Growth,” a panel in Boston November 1. She’ll be joined by Stephen Rustow, principal of Museoplan and architecture critic Mimi Zeiger. It’s part of “Finding the ‘Local’ in Metropolis,” Circus for Construction’s series of events at the much talked about Lawn on D on the Boston Waterfront. Panel moderators will be Irene Chin (MDes '15) and Michael Hays (associate dean for academic affairs and professor of architectural theory); Ashley Mendelsohn (MDes '14) and Craig Reschke (MLA '15) were also involved in the planning.
The timing and setting for the panel are fitting in anticipation of the Harvard Art Museum’s public reopening on November 16. Circus for Construction, a mobile event venue making its second Boston appearance, was a winner of the Worldwide Storefront competition, which is looking ahead to the future of cultural production.
