dc.description.abstract In an American society that is becoming increasingly more diverse, multicultural education provides an array of models for educational institutions such as museums to meet the diverse needs of their constituencies. Multiculturalism is an undeniable reality for today’s art museums with collections and audiences from diverse cultures. To ensure long-term sustainability and relevance, art museums must actively engage with diverse communities, respond to visitor needs, and rethink accepted education and interpretation practices. Acknowledging the important role multiculturalism plays in the United States, this investigation explores how multicultural education theory can inform the cultural diversity policies and practices of general art museums. en
