As the Smithsonian prepares for the opening of the National Museum of African American History and Culture, its other museums stand ready to welcome both the institution and new visitors. The National Museum of African Art is among those collaborating with the new-comer and anticipating people seeking stories told through art and artifacts old and new alike. We talk with the director of that museum about its work with its new neighbor, an award it’s bringing online this fall, and the future of museums more broadly.
