The video is part of a thesis project of Helena Liikanen-Renger for the University of Southern California Graduate School MA in Specialized Journalism 2013. It looks into the role and relevance of art museums in todays’ society. The question is examined through several online video interviews of Californian museum workers, architects and other experts.
The project seeks to find new voices in the ongoing discussion on museums, and especially the voices of the audience. The project is presented as a website and a Pinterest board. The Internet and social media offer wonderful platforms for telling a journalistic story that can continue its life online after being published.
