Description of Pictures: Dr. Natalia Majluf, Director of the Museo de Arte de Lima, Peru, talks on "Public or Private? Cultural Institutions in Latin America:the Case of the Museo de Arte de Lima"
Through a case study of the work undertaken by the Museo de Arte de Lima, this lecture will address issues that arise from the public/private dichotomy which defines cultural administration in Latin America.
This museum is a private non-profit cultural institution which is undertaking a major renovation of its infrastructure. The talk will also offer a general overview of the museum’s work to expand its collection so as to better represent the history of Peruvian art.
Dr. Natalia Majluf is the author of the Andean Guide, a three-volume reference work on the pre-Hispanic, vice regal and early republican periods of the Andean region. At the Museo de Arte de Lima, she has been head curator (1995-1999) and acting director (2000-2001), and was appointed director in 2002.

Description of Subject Matter: The Inter-American Development Bank's Cultural Center showcases and provides a forum for discussion for the intellectual and artistic works of the Bank’s 47 member countries, particularly those from Latin America and the Caribbean. All events are free and open to the public.
The Cultural Center also provides small grants to local organizations for micro projects that promote cultural development in the region.
Bigger photos? To save server space, the full-sized versions of these images have either not been loaded to the server or have been removed from the server. (Only some pages are loaded with full-sized images and those usually get removed after three months.)
I still have them though. If you want me to email them to you, please send an email to email@example.com
and I can email them to you, or, depending on the number of images, just repost the page again will the full-sized images.
2008 photos: Equipment this year: I was using three cameras -- the Fuji S9000 and the Canon Rebel Xti from last year, and a new camera, the Fuji S100fs. The first two cameras had their pluses and minuses and I really didn't have a single camera that I thought I could use for just about everything. But I loved the S100fs and used it almost exclusively this year.
Trips this year: (1) Civil War Preservation Trust annual conference in Springfield, Missouri , (2) a week in New York, (3) a week in San Diego for the Comic-Con, (4) a driving trip to St. Louis, and (5) a visit to dad and Dixie's in Asheville, North Carolina.
Ego strokes: A picture I'd taken last year during a Friends of the Homeless event was published in USA Today with a photo credit and everything! I became a volunteer photographer with the AFI/Silver theater.
Number of photos taken this year: 330,000.
