If we were to put an #exhibition about AMM together, we'd want to dig into mysteries like the story featured in this label. It was torn yet stored in an envelope in our archive. Is it a tall tale? Is it true? Where's the gavel?! Hmmm... ๐Ÿค” #museum30 #midwestmuseums

Our #museum30 #dreammuseum is inspired by a visit to the Milwaukee Art Museum (@milwaukeeart). We'd love to visit a place full of installations that use art + science concepts in a mysterious way, so we look closely & discover how it works... (Is YOUR museum like this? Tell us!)
