Museum Blog Round Up:5

The museum blogosphere continues to grow, it seems I hear about a new museum blog every week. Climate Change and the Bering Sea is written by Karen de Seve from Liberty Science Center who’s gathering footage for a upcoming exhibition. At the other end of the Earth, the Natural History Museum has an Antarctic conservation blog which has been posting since late summer (February 2006).

Museum Blogging provides “news and insights into the world of museums.” They’re off to a good start and have been blogging since late April. This blog is not to be confused with Museumblogs, our own effort at creating a directory of museum blogs. At the moment, we’re working on a way to automate RSS feeds from multiple blogs. More about that soon.

The Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis shares some Development(al) Thoughts. While the Curator’s Egg talks titles, in the post Title fight the curator asks…

I wonder occasionally how much difference the title makes. Some I have seen are prosaic (â€?Gold of the Pharaohsâ€? – an exhibition of, well, the gold of, errm, some pharaohs) was a smash hit in Edinburgh in 1988. A touring exhibition, I believe. A subsequent blockbuster attempt in 1990, on the Incas iirc, fared less well. I wonder if the title (â€?Sweat of the Sunâ€?) had anything to do with it?**

Assembly tells us about Indigenous Australian Artists in Paris, Art swallows building in Paris. While in Andy Warh-blog we learn that Andy went to meet Bianca to interview Ungaro. “He was wearing a white suit.” High fashion, especially back on May 31, 1977.

Terrain, Touch Tand Symbolic Tables are explored at The Walker’s New Media Initiatives blog. Musematic looks at Widgets from the Rijksmuseum and American Museum of Natural History. ArtLook follows up, adds on and tells us to Get a Widget. (If you frequent the Ideum blog you probably know about our efforts with various widgets.)

RedShift Now’s Field Diaries take visitors to Zambia, the North Pole, and elsewhere. While Science Buzz fills in its readers on the devastation caused by the recent Indonesian Earthquake. (If you want to help you can learn more and make a donation at Medecins Sans Frontieres Doctors with Borders.)

If you’re looking for past round ups here they are: 4321.
