Sample Museum Pro Trends

Each Museum PRO Trend is on its own slide with implications, a quantified score, and examples linked to online museum articles, videos and images. Examples:

Subversive Wildlife Wildlife photographers trade in shock value for more honest depictions Implications - Many wildlife photographers are foregoing shock tactics in favor of a more authentic way of depicting their subjects. By photographing animals, insects and sea creatures in unique contexts that are often up-close and personal, these artists are offering alternative narratives that attract audience engagement. This approach serves as a breath of fresh air for viewers who are over-saturated with content produced solely to shock.
