Minneapolis Institute of Arts Takes New Approach to Education; Creates Director of Learning Role
Milton will lead the design and implementation of interpretive strategies for publications, exhibitions, permanent-collection galleries, and virtual communications.

MINNEAPOLIS, MN.- As society becomes increasingly infused with digital technology, the Minneapolis Institute of Arts (MIA) is harnessing new platforms for its audiences. The MIA has hired Katherine Milton, Ph.D., to spearhead new methods for aiding visitors’ understanding of visual art, encouraging interdisciplinary thinking, and helping connect to cultures of the past and present. Milton will lead the design and implementation of interpretive strategies for publications, exhibitions, permanent-collection galleries, and virtual communications. She will also oversee the museum’s educational programs for schools, families, youth, and adult audiences.

“As technology creates new opportunities and modes of thinking, we see many new possibilities for programming at the MIA, which tap into people’s desire to become highly creative thinkers and problem solvers,” said Kaywin Feldman, Director and President of the MIA. “What better place to encourage imaginative thought than an art museum, a repository of astonishing works of art created by some of the world’s most talented and creative problem solvers?”

“The possibilities for experimentation and innovation at the MIA are infinite,” said Milton, Director of Learning and Innovation at the MIA. “I’m inspired by both the museum’s collection and the exceptionally gifted colleagues with whom I will work. I look forward to collaborating on crafting learning projects and programs, both traditional and digital, which will extend the impact of our collection across not only the curriculum, but across constituencies around the world.”

Milton received her Ph.D. in Education from Arizona State University, with a focus in educational media and computers, and her B.A. from DePaul University. For the past six years, Milton served as the founding director of the Aesthetic Technologies Lab (The @ Lab) at Ohio University’s College of Fine Arts. There she built and led a cross-disciplinary multi-use facility where artists, professors, students, and the community produced collaborative projects, often using emerging technologies, for fine arts practice and pedagogy. The Director of Learning and Innovation position replaces the MIA’s traditional Director of Education post, which was held for the past 30 years by Kate Johnson. Following Johnson’s retirement, the museum underwent an internal planning process to re-imagine its educational programming.
