Organizing a traveling exhibition for the first time or the tenth time? On the Road Again: Developing and Managing Traveling Exhibitions
covers all you need to know about touring an exhibition to multiple venues. Part 1 examines developing the show concept, assigning duties to staff, setting a budget, determining fees, negotiating contracts, crating and shipping, and much more. Part 2 is comprised of brief case studies from the field - everything from dealing with foreign customs officials to transporting objects through a tornado. Features sample documents, including contracts and a loan agreement, and a bibliography. Appropriate for staff at all types of museums, particularly those at small and midsize institutions. Written by the authors of Museum Registration Methods 5th Edition, this title is a must for every museum bookshelf.
