The Creative Commons has been well-articulated online, but what does it look like in the physical world? Join creative professionals from SFMOMA, the Oakland Museum, and beyond for an interactive salon on the growth of user participation and sharing in museums and cultural institutions. This event will include a workshop component where you can experiment with redesigning an art exhibition for more social, collaborative engagement.

Speakers for the evening include Jake Barton, founder of Local Projects, a media design firm for physical space whose projects include the 9/11 Memorial Museum, the Official NYC Information Center and StoryCorps; Anne Bast, Intellectual Property Associate for San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Kathleen Mclean, who has worked since 2006 on the redesign and installation of the Oakland Museum of California's Gallery of California History; and Nina Simon, author of The Participatory Museum,
7-7:15 - drinks and mingling

7:20-7:45 - brief presentations from each panelist on how they are working to promote a physical "creative commons" through their projects.
