  61. 61. Questions to ask yourself…<br />How does the space operate? Is it small? Large? Does it encourage or discourage interaction with the art or others?<br />What is the scope of this exhibit? What objects are chosen? Why might they be chosen? What are you supposed to learn?<br />How are objects displayed? Are they grouped together? Separated? What relationships do you see among objects? <br />Are objects presented as artworks or artifacts?<br />How are the space and objects lit? Is the room bright? Dark? Does the lighting add a sense of drama? Does it highlight particular objects?<br />
  62. 62. Major Goals<br /><ul><li>How does the development of public museums follow the same developments of artists and patrons?
  63. 63. What is the significance of Susan Vogel’s statement: “Almost nothing displayed in museums was made to be seen in them?”
  64. 64. How do museum displays impact how you perceive a particular culture or set of objects?</li>
