Anderson will discuss his recent book, “The Quality Instinct: Seeing Art Through a Museum Director’s Eye”, during the program’s opening dinner at the historic National Arts Club.

Part personal memoir, part thinking person’s guide to the museum experience, “The Quality Instinct” is filled with wit, humor, anecdotes and insights from the author’s thirty-years in the highly competitive, often contentious art world. Anderson will take conference participants on a grand tour of ancient and contemporary art, sharing five simple metrics that help to increase “visual literacy”.

The goal of the Art Museum Partnership is to provide the leaders of nonprofit art museums with educational opportunities that facilitate the sharing of ideas, information, resources, and collections. The Directors Forum was primary established to benefit the directors of the small to mid-sized institutions that comprise the broadest segment in the field. However, since everyone can benefit from the knowledge of their piers, the directors of larger museums are also encouraged to participate and lend their support.
