those experiences. As we meet with
people representing other cultures,
we think of ourselves as Americans in
the same profession, looking at and
dealing with the same issues."
Tickets for the tours and associated
programs are available to the public,
also invited to view two art exhibits
planned to complement the event.
Host institutions are the Janice
Charach Gallery and Shalom Street at
the Jewish Community Center in West
Bloomfield, the Holocaust Memorial
Center in Farmington Hills and
the Temple Israel Judaic & Archival
Museum in West Bloomfield, all to be
visited by participants who also will
get to see the Detroit Institute of Arts,
Cranbrook Art Museum in Bloomfield
Hills and the Henry Ford in Dearborn.
"We've had private showings to
get ready for all the visits?' says Terri
Stearn, director of the Janice Charach
Gallery and conference host co-chair
with Stephen Goldman, executive
director of the Holocaust Memorial
Center. "At the gallery, we're very
pleased to be hosting this event for
the first time."
Some 80 institutions are part
of CAJM, founded in 1977 by the
National Foundation for Jewish
Culture. The organization develops
programs to train museum staff and
volunteers, advocate on behalf of
Jewish museums, foster a professional
network and promote information
exchanges.
Josh Perelman, chief curator and
director of exhibitions and collections
at the National Museum of American
Jewish History in Philadelphia, will be
in Michigan to moderate a discussion
on "Motor City Frontiers?'
Panelists will include Graham
Beal, director, president and CEO
of the Detroit Institute of Arts, and
Lila Corwin Berman, director of the
Feinstein Center for American Jewish
History at Temple University.
"We want to have a lively but seri-

ous conversation about the roles
cultural institutions play in the civic
health of urban space?' Perelman
explains. "Because of Detroit's chal-
lenges, its cultural institutions can be
archetypes and incubators in driving
the revitalization of the community."
Those who arrive the day before
the conference begins will have a
chance to visit the Motown Historical
Museum (Hitsville USA) in Detroit,
the studios where contemporary,
far-reaching sounds were created for
international audiences. Afterward,
there will be a visit to a popular
nightspot Downtown.
The first formal day of the event
includes tours to Cranbrook Art
Museum as well as the JCC and
Temple Israel galleries. Among the
discussion topics are "Jews and
American Cities;' "Collecting the,
Contemporary,""Collaboration,
Creativity and Community Building:
Case Studies for Success in a
Marketplace of Cultural Offerings"
and "Building Bridges: Museums and
Schools as Partners."
The second day takes participants
to the Henry Ford, Arab American
National Museum and the Holocaust
Memorial Center. Discussion top-
ics include "Where the Particular
Encounters the Universal: The
Civil Rights Movement in Museum
Education;' Critiquing the Show?'
"Curating the 21st Century" and "The
Power of Place
The final meeting day features vis-
its to the Charles H. Wright Museum
of African American History and the
Detroit Institute of Arts. The Margles
and Perelman sessions will be fea-
tured.
"Networking is a very important
part of the conference?' says Goldman,
who wants participants to understand
that the Holocaust Center also teaches
about Judaism and invites traveling
exhibits. "Knowing one another helps
with collaboration."
