Join us at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond, Virginia from June 18-19, 2020 for the Annual Association for Art Museum Interpretation Conference. Registration details will be announced in March.

The 2020 annual meeting will feature two days of interdisciplinary panels, presentations, in-gallery exploration, and roundtable discussions addressing many of our field’s most pressing issues: establishing shared language, advocating for our work, and supporting self-care and professional development. Rapid-fire case study presentations will spark your imagination and topical roundtable conversations will provide you with new perspectives on old problems. 


Registration details will be announced in March through our website and newsletter.


This convening is designed for professionals engaged in the work of interpretation at art museums. If you would like to register more than 3 people from your institution, please email before registering.

Richmond, Virginia, known as the River City, is one of the nation’s oldest cities! While Richmond is most well known for its long history, it has also been named a top food destination.  Enjoy all Richmond has to offer while you are here!


Case Study presentations have become something of a tradition at AAMI annual convenings. Presenters speak candidly about real-life interpretive problems, challenges, and opportunities they’ve encountered and solved, often through creative and experimental means. Attendees value the opportunity to hear from a range of colleagues and learn about varied approaches to tackling issues that many of us face.

The Convening Committee welcomes proposals for 10-minute-long case study presentations at AAMI 2020 in Richmond. Submit your proposal by completing this submission form by midnight on March 20th. Notifications to accepted presenters will be made in early April.
