We invite you to join us in the continuing conversation and planning for the Pratt Museum’s Capital Project. This fall we will have several opportunities for community members to share ideas on repurposing possibilities for the existing building and to provide input on the location of the new building. We will be starting off with an engaging session in mid-October where you can come in and share your thoughts or feelings about what is important to you in a museum.
As always, if you are unable to come to a meeting you can email your comments or mail them to Pratt Museum, 3779 Bartlett Street, Homer, AK 99603.
What is a Museum? Thursday, October 14th, 5:30 to 7:00pm. At this informal community conversation participants will have an opportunity to share ideas of what is important to you about museums. What inspires you? What ignites your curiosity or your desire to learn more? How can a museum best serve its community? What types of events or exhibits are most interesting to you?
Repurposing the Existing Building Thursday, November 18th, 5 to 6:30pm. This is an opportunity to explore the potential for different uses by the community or other organizations of part or all of the existing building that would also align with the Pratt’s mission.
Repurposing the Existing Building/ Location of the New Building Saturday, November 20th, 3 to 5pm. See descriptions above and below.
Location of the New Building Monday, December 6th, 12pm to 1:30pm. We will be examining three primary options for locating the new museum and gathering your thoughts on the pros and cons of each.
