Artistories on KXCI – October 28, 2020

Lisa Falk — Arizona State Museum

Lisa Falk, Head of Community Engagement

In this episode of Artistories, we hear from Lisa Falk, artist and Head of Community Engagement at the Arizona State Museum (ASM); the oldest and largest anthropological research museum in the Southwest, established in 1893. Lisa tells us how it came to be and what it’s known for. We discuss past, current and future programming, including exhibits such as Sorting Out Race: Examining Racial Identity and Stereotypes through Thrift Store Donations, A History of Walls: The Borders We BuildThrough the Eyes of the Eagle: Illustrating Healthy Living, and Photo ID: Portraits by Native Youth. We discuss best practices for getting community feedback and engagement on exhibit concepts and enhancements. We talk about the museum’s mission of educating on and advocating for the indigenous people who make up and have made up Arizona and its surroundings, how non-native people can learn about the diversity of indigenous peoples in these lands (Click here for an online list of resources by topic from Arizona State Museum)
