The Western Museums Association has continually compiled a list of resources for museums and related institutions relating to COVID-19 closures and reopenings.

Museums across the US are closing their doors once more – many with no indication of when they'll reopen.

To help you and your institution make it through this second wave and reopen in the coming months, we have put together a variety of updated reopening resources, recommendations, and tools for your use. Check them out!

Why Museum Store Sunday Matters More Than Ever This Year

Museum Store Sunday, the Museum Store Association’s (MSA) signature advocacy initiative, is fast approaching, happening this year on November 29 during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. While this year’s event will look different due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the mission and sense of celebration behind this special day remain true and timely. Devoted to advocacy on behalf of nonprofit retail, and encouraging direct community engagement through visitation and sales in participating cultural institutions, Museum Store Sunday is more vital than ever to our institutions and their stores. Whether a museum participates in this global celebration with in-store promotions and limited visitor capacities, or with an online store and virtual events, museum stores stand to increase their profile and reinforce their essential role within their institutions and communities.

In these times, we believe Museum Store Sunday will resonate more than ever with consumers and museum visitors, persuading them to shop and “Be a Patron” at their favorite museum stores. Not only are these patrons interested in finding inspiring, creative, and educational gifts for friends and family; they want to lend much-needed support to their local cultural institutions. They are aware of the prolonged museum closures, the furloughed and laid-off staff, and that devastating impact on their communities. We believe the public will consciously contribute to and support their favorite cultural institutions during this holiday season, and purposely shop at their local or favorite museum stores, whether in-store or online or both.

As of now, more than fifteen hundred museum stores representing five continents, twenty-three countries, and all fifty United States plus the District of Columbia, will offer inspired shopping at cultural institutions on Museum Store Sunday. Since every venue is unique, each store’s approach to this international event and shopping campaign will be different. There is no right or wrong way to participate on November 29; it only matters that your museum store does so! The following are options for participating, whether your museum has opened or you are awaiting reopening.

Association of Hawai'i Archivists

Be an armchair traveler with AHA - we have missed visiting our amazing members' sites this year, so we are going virtual!

Location: Online, Donkey Mill Art Center (https://donkeymillartcenter.org)
Date and Time: Thu, November 19, 2020, 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM HST
Registration via Eventbrite: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/virtual-tour-and-talk-story-with-donkey-mill-art-center-tickets-127800339255

Join the Association of Hawaiʻi Archivists for a virtual tour and discussion of Donkey Mill Art Center's exhibit, Nā Māla: Layered Landscapes of Kona Coffee Heritage, currently on view at Donkey Mill Art Center in Holualoa, Hawaiʻi Island. This exhibition celebrates Kona coffee heritage through the exploration of natural, cultural and agricultural landscapes. From the generous and extensive māla of Kona’s mahiʻai, to the opportunities the ‘āina provided to Kona’s coffee families, featured artworks explore interconnected elements of nā māla which culminate to create and sustain growth and abundance in Kona today.

Mina Elison, Communication Director and Curator, and Maja Clark, Executive Director, (both former AHA Board Members) will also talk story about the unique fluidity of collections spaces at Donkey Mill and how the organization is adapting to COVID-19, including programs that have risen out of the pandemic’s shadow.

Maja Clark
A longtime Honolulu resident, Maja Clark has served as the Executive Director of the Donkey Mill Art Center since 2018 after three years at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art leading the Collection Information & Digital Assets (CIDA) team. A CIDA project close to home and heart was the IMLS-funded digitization of the Mark and Carolyn Blackburn Collection of Photography featuring historical images of Hawai`i. She previously held the position of Collections Manager at the Shangri La Museum of Islamic Art, Culture & Design. Maja holds a BFA from The Cooper Union, School of Art; a Graduate Certificate in Museum Studies and a Master’s in Library & Information Science from the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa.

Mina Elison
Mina Elison was born and raised in Kailua on O‘ahu. With generational ties to South Kona on Hawai‘i, Mina resides in her family home in Ke’ei and currently serves as the Communications Director & Curator for the Donkey Mill Art Center, located in the ahupuaʻa of Keauhou on Hawaiʻi Island. She previously held the position of Museum Curator at the Kona Historical Society and through her work as a curator, aims to create exhibitions and programs which amplify stories of the community. Mina has B.A. in Anthropology and French from the University of San Diego and earned an M.A. in Museum Studies from New York University in 2008. She served on the Board of the Association of Hawai‘i Archivists from 2018 to 2020 and has worked to create programs connecting communities with collections on Maui, O‘ahu, Kaua‘i and Hawai‘i.

As Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument (PMNM) celebrates 10 years as a natural and cultural World Heritage site and over two decades of protections, Hawaiian community leaders continue to be active agents of biocultural conservation and restoration in PMNM. Innovative practitioners within the Hawaiian cultural resources management (CRM) community have led a resurgence in ʻŌiwi (Indigenous) institutions and methodologies and conducted (re)search on (k)new information and ancestral memories about the functions of cultural land- and seascapes. This presentation provides a brief history of research on cultural resources, and several examples illustrating how the concept of cultural resources is (re)framed and implemented in PMNM management.

This presentation is part of the Third Thursday By the Bay Presentation Series at Mokupāpapa Discovery Center that is the visitor center for Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument in Hilo, Hawai`i. It is also supported by a grant from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation through the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation.

Winter is the reserve manager at the He‘eia National Estuarine Research Reserve, located within the largest sheltered body of water in the Hawaiian Islands. The reserve protects unique ecosystems including the He‘eia Stream, coral reefs, sand flats, an ancient Hawaiian fishpond, as well as traditional agricultural and heritage lands. It is home to the endangered Hawaiian stilt, moorhen, coot, duck and hoary bat.
