“Experiencing the Museum—A Place of Awesome Possibilities”

Members of the Case Western Reserve University community are invited to hear from Kathleen H. Barrie, who heads the Putnam Art Collection at CWRU, Wednesday, April 3, from 6 to 7 p.m. in Tinkham Veale University Center, Ballroom A.

Barrie will present “Experiencing the Museum—A Place of Awesome Possibilities” for the 2024 Richard N. Campen Lecture in Architecture and Sculpture.

She will reflect on her long career developing some of the most celebrated museums in the country and the role that awe plays in inspiration, design and implementation. Barrie, along with her husband, Dennis, are principals at Barrie Projects, a unique museum and cultural planning firm which provides specialized services to a wide range of institutions, visitor centers and destinations. 

Their noted projects include the International Spy Museum in Washington, D.C., The Mob Museum in Las Vegas and the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Museum in Colorado Springs.
