2019 CAM Fellows: External Affairs

Part 1 of our 2019 CAM Fellowship program webinar series includes case studies with an External Affairs discipline, focusing on best practices in public relations and creating cultural memory through ethnic-specific institutions.


Presenters: Angela Medrano & Emily Butts
Wednesday, May 22, 2019 12:00PM - 1:00PM

The CAM Fellowship program offers alumni of the Getty Marrow Undergraduate Internship program the opportunity to attend the annual conference and develop case studies based on sessions that inspired them. These case studies offer expanded understanding of California museum programs that were presented during the conference and provide suggestions to apply lessons learned in your own institution. Join us in two webinars on Wednesday, May 22nd and Thursday, May 23rd to hear our 2019 CAM Fellows present their findings. The presentations are divided by discipline of the case study topic. Wednesday's webinar has an External Affairs focus, while Thursday's will explore topics relating to Public Programs.

Thursday Presenters:

Angela Medrano, Communications Assistant, Los Angeles County Museum of Art; 2019 CAM Fellow
Communicating the Hammer Museum's Made In L.A. 2018This case study delves in to the Hammer Museum’s PR strategy for the Made in L.A. 2018 exhibition as a model for incorporating equity into one’s everyday work life.

Emily Butts, MA Candidate, The University of Texas at Austin; 2019 CAM Fellow
The Role of Ethnic-Specific Museums in Creating Cultural Memory: 
Who is included, who is excluded, and why? This question is pertinent to all museums—especially when it comes to collecting and exhibition practices—but it is especially relevant when the museum is a restored immigration station. This article explores the history of Angel Island Conservancy and how the island’s history as the “Ellis Island of the Pacific” relates to other gatekeeping practices in the United States, specifically along the United States-Mexico border.

This event is part of CAM's Lunch & Learn free webinar series.
