Hilferty is passionate about museums – ever since our start in 1971. This year we are participating in over a half dozen conferences, workshops, and programs in the fields of museums, history, exhibits, and design. We are presenting with our museum colleagues on topics like human rights, design, innovation, and building community relationships. We are learning about the latest trends in the field, in ideas and materials, so we can ensure our future projects are the best they can be for our partners.
