Jennifer Wild Czajkowski is Director of Interpretive Programs at the Detroit Institute of Arts. She leads a variety of interpretive projects at the museum, including school and tour programs, and works closely with curators and designers striving to make meaningful art exhibitions. She was the lead interpretive educator on the DIA's comprehensive reinstallation, in which the museum sought to reinvent itself as a more visitor-centered institution. The project culminated in the museum's grand reopening in November 2007. Before that, she was involved in nearly every major special exhibition presented by the DIA since 2000. She has made presentations at several national conferences on interpretation and visitor evaluation, as well as the changing role of the museum educator. Much of her time these days is spent trying to figure out how to generate relevant dialogues between the DIA and the people of metro Detroit.

Jennifer will present New Technology in the Museum: a case study of three museums in the Fluid community working together. [Paper]
