Julia Einstein has pivoted to the online museum space. An accomplished museum educator and administrator, she has created partnerships that drive innovation. Her work has included collaborating across museum departments and across the region’s artistic community. In a career from classroom to museum educator, Julia Einstein views learning as a way to experiment, enjoy and challenge one's perspective. At Historic New England she creates school programs for the six historic house museums throughout Maine. At the Museum of Art at MassArt, she develops museum learning experiences for Boston Public Schools through the Looking to Learn program. Her projects, exhibitions and public programs create the identity of a museum by engaging visitors in more participatory ways. Interpretation is viewed as a process; an event.
