ExhibitFiles, an ASTC website for the museum exhibits community, reaches a milestone April 23 with the first anniversary of the site’s opening. Started with the support of a committed core group of exhibits people and funding from the National Science Foundation, the site has grown to include more than 650 members from around the world, who have generously shared their experiences and reflections in more than 100 case studies and reviews.
ASTC has a longstanding commitment to excellence and innovation in museum exhibits. By building a collaborative community site with a rich and growing set of exhibition records at its core, we hope to preserve accumulated experience, make it easier to find, and support development of a culture of critique.
The site’s contributions and promise were recently recognized with the Museums & the Web’s Best of the Web award for top museum professional site. Site design is by Ideum, an ASTC member.
