Kathleen McLean on the First Person Museum

Assisting in the creation of the First Person Museum is Kathleen McLean, a masterful museum consultant from Berkeley. Kathleen was profiled in yesterday’s New York Times for her most recent project: the reopening of the Oakland Museum (“The Story of California. The Story of You.”). Her career has thrived on creating community-based, bottom-up museum exhibitions throughout the country and the First Person Museum is her latest project. I caught her for a couple minutes at the conclusion of our second day of planning meetings before she headed back to the west coast. Watch what she has to say about your museum below.







Hear what Samara from Radio Diaries has to say after day 1 of our planning sessions.
