Lovci explains why such events matter to Duggal, ‘We often forget that museums, as we know them today, originated only about 150 years ago, but filled a massive void in the human experience of understanding history, arts, global cultures and the natural world.  Museums remain a treasure trove of learning, wonder and inspiration.  Bringing museum thought leaders together with visual experts could not be more important in helping inspire future generations of artists, explorers, scientists and leaders.”

Duggal is proud of our ongoing relationship with museum professionals to facilitate ongoing museum design conversations. Please watch and consider joining us for future events in the series.
