J. Peder Zane, an assistant professor in the Department of Media & Communications, published two articles in the Museums section of the New York Times.
The first article, “A Park as an Extension of the Museum Itself,reported on the North Carolina Museum of Art’s $13 million project to break down the walls of the traditional museum and attract new visitors by transforming some of the land that surrounds its art-filled buildings into a space that offers culture experiences.
His second article, “Framing Your Digital Art,described a new iPad app that allows users to share their selfies with high-end style.
“Working in the field is one of the best ways to stay sharp in the classroom,” Zane said. “Journalism is ever-changing and writing for the New York Times helps me stay abreast of developments that our students must be aware of to thrive when they graduate.”
