The UHM Museum Studies Graduate Certificate Program would like to invite you to The Museum of You: A Talk by Jake Barton which will be held at the Shidler College of Business in Room A102 on August 27, 2014 at 6:00 PM
 
As the media and exhibit designer for the 9/11 Memorial Museum, the Eisenhower Memorial and the Cleveland Museum of Art, Jake Barton understands that a diversity of visitor experiences can make the observer an active participant in the exhibit, creating a "Museum of You." 
 
In this moving talk, Jake will give a peek at some of those installations and guide you to imagine the possibilities for future museum experiences in Hawai‘i.
