In this in-depth study of the role of engagement in helping organizations to succeed, Anne Bergeron and Beth Tuttle examine what they call "magnetic" organizations -- those that have developed an energized core centered on people, vision, and service, which enables them to attract and retain critical resources, such as talented and committed employees, loyal audiences, engaged donors, powerful goodwill from the community at large, and the financial capital required to sustain programmatic excellence and growth. These organizations have become "magnetic" by creating strong internal alignment around a compelling shared vision, and then extending the reach of their magnetic fields by engaging, serving and, ultimately, activating their internal and external communities through meaningful experiences and authentic relationships. Magnetic: The Art and Science of Engagement analyzes six American museums: Children's Museum in Pittsburgh; Chrysler Museum of Art in Norfolk, Virginia; Conner Prairie Interactive History Park in Fishers, Indiana; The Franklin Institute in Philadelphia; Natural Science Center of Greensboro in North Carolina; and Philbrook Museum of Art in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Each of these institutions has embraced a people and service-first ethic that has transformed their...
Ramesses the Great, an Exhibition at the Boston Museum of Science (catalog and text)
In 1279 B.C., Egypt's last great warrior-pharaoh, Ramesses II, ascended the throne. The legacy of his 66-year reign can be found in the remarkable remains of his temples and palaces, statues and murals, jewelry and tools, preserved for over 3000 years by Egypt's shifting sands and hot, dry climate. Today, thanks to the painstaking work of archaeologists, anthropologists, and other scholars, we are able to view these exquisite artifacts in their historical and scientific contexts. As visitors to the Boston Museum of Science examine the objects on display, they too will act as archaeologists, first appreciating and then questioning in order to discover the fascinating stories that lie behind each piece.
