To support the planning process of Shifting Boundaries: New Views on American Landscapes at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Asian Art (NMAA). Shifting Boundaries offers an important new platform for previously underrepresented constituencies to consider human relationships to the natural world using the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Asian Art collections. Shifting Boundaries uses a model of community curation to make these works of art directly relevant to contemporary audiences through the lens of the environment. After the project, NMAA, with feedback from the curatorial group, will create a resource documenting the collaborative process, which will help both the institution and the field at large reflect on what worked well and what did not. This resource, which could take the form of a website or a conference presentation, aids other institutions considering similar projects.
