Steve Kukic: Engaging Diverse Audiences

What do the art world and the world of education have in common?  They each serve a diverse audience with ever changing needs and interests.  In this segment of the Thought Leaders Network Series, Stevan Kukic, Vice President of Strategic Sales Initiatives at Cambium Learning/Voyager, draws connections between the education world and the art world building off of an interview with Richard Koshalek, Director of the Smithsonian’s Hirshhorn Museum in Washington, DC, on innovations in the visual arts arena.

Gather insights into how the changing landscape of academic instruction – with the inclusion of new technologies, increased attention to individual needs and use of student data – is great news for all learners and how embracing innovations have the potential to increase achievement for all.

Key Ideas from the Richard Koshalek Interview:
  • The museum is expanding their vision to include new disciplines in contemporary art and incorporating projects using multiple media to reach a more diverse audience of museum attendees and talent pool of new artists.
  • A cross disciplinary approach pushes the boundaries of art
  • The notion of art is expanding to integrate new technologies that engage audiences
  • The field for art has moved beyond the four walls of the museum in a positive way to reach people through their smart phones or in unexpected places like a mural in an urban setting.
