It starts outside with the architecture signaling what is to come, building anticipation and raising expectations. Then, the flow of galleries and ideas unfolds. Show me something I’ve never seen, introduce me to people I’ve never known, help me understand places and times I’ll never experience. Broaden my horizons. Open my mind. Change my life.

In this talk Kathleen H. Barrie, who heads the Putnam Art Collection at CWRU, reflects on her long career developing some of the most celebrated museums in the country and the role that awe plays in inspiration, design and implementation. Kathleen, along with her husband Dennis, are principals at Barrie Projects, a unique museum and cultural planning firm which provides specialized services to a wide range of institutions, visitor centers and destinations. Noted projects are the International Spy Museum in Washington, DC, The Mob Museum in Las Vegas and the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Museum in Colorado Springs.
