During February and March of 2016, The Museum at FIT (MFIT) partnered with Chelsea Prep elementary school (P.S. 33) to develop a program in which students learned to identify special types of garments seen in fairy tales and characteristics of “fairy tale” fashions. We are pleased to announce that our program is featured in the Association of Art Museum Directors’ (AAMD’s) latest publication in its Next Practices series: Next Practices in Partnerships. The resource is a compilation of 94 case studies from AAMD members detailing effective partnerships between art museums and community stakeholders that have enhanced museums’ service to the public.
