About the Conference

The Association of Midwest Museums (AMM) and Michigan Museums Association (MMA) are teamed up to host a very special joint conference in Grand Rapids in the fall of 2019, aligning with a major art event called Project 1, from the creators of the internationally recognized event ArtPrize.
