Join us on Tuesday, August 10, 2021 at 12:00 p.m. for a discussion of MMoCA Post-Pandemic and Beyond with Christina Brungardt, the Gabriele Haberland Director of Madison Museum of Contemporary Art.
While balancing looking back and moving forward, nonprofit organizations must focus on the vital nature of their work, service to their communities, and fulfillment of their mission. Museums, especially those of similar size and scope to the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art (MMoCA), provide a space to engage in conversations about our current world. They allow for moments of reflection, calm, inspiration, and motivation for envisioning the future. In the last year, new challenges and opportunities presented themselves. While this has been a difficult time, it has also highlighted MMoCA’s path forward based on its history as a community arts organization.
