A panel discussion for museum professionals will examine the process by which graduate students created a virtual exhibition linking objects in natural history, art, and history museums. Central to the success of the project was the intersection of visual literacy skills with emerging technologies, curatorial strategies and museum education principles. This prototype offers an accessible model for museums.

This presentation was recorded November 6, 2014 during the 47th International Visual Literacy Association (IVLA) conference at the Toledo Museum of Art by WGTE Public Media.
