Author of many publications and an internationally known speaker, Maxwell Anderson is a leader in moving museums toward incorporating web mediated technology in their daily lives. His publications on museums and technology have promoted greater transparency among institutions, and his advocacy led the Indianapolis Museum of Art to launch, in 2007, the first real-time museum dashboard, revealing over 50 fields of sensitive financial and performance data and soliciting commentary from the general public about the museum's commitment to openness. “Through the Looking Glass: Museums and Internet-Based Transparency.” Dr. Maxwell Anderson, the Melvin & Bren Simon Director and CEO of the Indianapolis Museum of Art delivers the Spring 2009 G. Brown Goode Smithsonian Education Lecture at the Smithsonian’s Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden.
