  Transforming Practice , a comprehensive collection of articles from Museum Education Roundtable's Journal of Museum Education , presents a rich and exemplary selection of writing in one accessible resource. Each of the book's four sections includes an introductory essay; "sparks" excerpted from each article that alone might ignite debate; "reflections" by some of the authors looking back on their work; and discussion questions. Four case studies in the final section highlight the fascinating interplay among change, response, and understanding.  Transforming Practice  is a professional development tool--a resource for museum training programs, small museums, staffs, practitioner groups, and friends to inspire conversation, critique, debate, and your own writing. As Stephen E. Weil writes in his foreword, this book reveals "the richness of ideas, the dedication to excellence, and the extraordinary depth and variety of talents to be found among this generation of museum educators."  Sponsored by the Museum Education Roundtable.

  The first publication produced by Museum of Contemporary Craft in partnership with Pacific Northwest College of Art, “How Envy Killed the Crafts Movement: An Autopsy in Two Parts,” is now available on lulu.com. The book is based on the lecture of the same name given by Garth Clark on October 16, 2008, co-presented by MoCC, PNCA and Oregon College of Art and Craft. “With characteristic humor, Clark’s lecture surveys the past 150 years...Arguing that the desire for parity with the fine arts by artists, crafters (as Clark prefers), collectors, academia and institutions created the demise of the movement itself, Clark expresses concern that nostalgia and envy plague an aging community. As a result, he wryly quips, success is measured by escape from the 'penitentiary' of craft into the 'nirvana' of the art world. Instead of seeking a bridge to the fine arts, Clark advocates re-unification with design.” -Namita Gupta Wiggers
