Arts and Humanities
Mary Schmidt Campbell, dean, Tisch School of the Arts, New York University,tells the story of one institution’s successful struggle to make the impossible merely difficult — to build a museum in a mythic urban ruin and to make that museum a force in both economic development and community empowerment. It is also a case study in democratic culture making, and adds myriad strategies and ideas to our collective tool-kit for the public arts and humanities.
