Love it or List it? Museum Renovation vs. New Building Fundraising

If you knock out some walls and build new galleries will donors get excited or do they only get pumped up by a brand new building??  This session will focus on case studies of museums that have successfully completed renovations of their physical spaces and examine the fundraising plans that supported those projects.  The session will be moderated by Lisa M. Key, Chief Development Officer of the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, a museum that will unveil a 12,000 square foot renovation geared at increasing their building’s visitor amenities and accessibility.

Presenters: Lisa Key, Chief Development Officer, Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago; Megan Riley, Director of External Affairs, The Bass Museum of Art
