"Rural art museums face distinct challenges when it comes to building audiences for exhibitions and programs," wrote Paul D’Ambrosio, president of the New York State Historical Association, in this Huffington Post article. “Unlike our counterparts located in urban areas or population centers, rural art museums must compel their audience to travel a good distance to partake of their offerings, and they must tailor their exhibitions and programs to the particular patterns favored by those travelers. At the same time, they must do so while building a donor and sponsorship base that is likewise not local or at least only seasonal.” The Fenimore Art Museum of rural Cooperstown, NY, found a solution through regional collaboration and interdisciplinary thinking.
