UREC Planning a Museum Studies Program

Hear about a new program being developed at Albany’s Underground Railroad Education Center to introduce youth to the field of museum studies. Lacey Wilson, director of the Museum Studies Youth Program, discusses plans to teach high schoolers practical skills for gathering and telling stories through exhibits, workshops, art installations, and more. She also explains how “National History Day” includes programs akin to science fairs, and her work judging documentaries created by local students. For more information on UREC, visit undergroundrailroadhistory.org, or stop by 194 Livingston Avenue in Albany (call ahead for an appointment). Produced by Brea Barthel for Hudson Mohawk Magazine.
