What did we do?

For the Art Institute of Chicago, we led the evaluation of Museum3D, an IMLS-funded experiment in public programs and 3D printing. We designed a range of instruments to collect data across five distinct program types, with the goalĀ of evaluating the potential impact of 3D technologies on audience engagement with museum collections. Findings provided guidelines for museums of different types with varied resources to meaningfully incorporate these technologies in programming. We co-presented the evaluation summary at Museums and the Web.
