Exhibit Development and Design
What is NAME?
NAME is the National Association for Museum Exhibition, one of the Professional Networks of the American Alliance of Museums (AAM). It fulfills the role of a Professional Interest Network of the MPMA through its regional representative to the Mountain-Plains.
Our mission is to provide a network for those in the MPMA region who work with or are interested in exhibitions. We want to enhance the cultural landscape by providing a forum on the value and relevance of exhibitions.
