We’re back with new insights into our traveling exhibition industry. We’ve compiled the latest data from ACM and ASTC member museums as of March 2022.
The reports show that traveling exhibition rentals have rebounded over the past year—insert happy dance! We’re excited to see that museums appear to be getting back to pre-pandemic traveling exhibition schedules. At the same time, we discovered a few museums still have yet to reopen and several have closed for good. We’re sending out good vibes to all of our colleagues working to reopen and rebuild traveling exhibitions programs.
Click below to see what’s now on-view at museums across the country. You might discover some new exhibitions!
