Our Neurosociety team received two American Association of Museums MUSE awards. We together won the Bronze award in the Interpretive Interactive Installation category, and the Jim Blackaby Memorial Award for “inventiveness and quality.”
This last one is a Special Jury Award that isn’t awarded every year. It’s considered a Best in Show. Here’s what AAM says it’s for:
“Introduced in 2004, the Jim Blackaby Ingenuity Award recognizes a project that exemplifies the power of creative imagination in the use of media and technology — a project that has a powerful effect on its audience and stands above the others in inventiveness and quality.”
Named for Jim Blackaby, a board member of the Media and Technology Program Network during its formative period in the 1990s, influenced the museum world with his innovative work in information services and Internet strategies during the early years of digital media integration within museums. Conceived in his memory, this award is granted to an organization selected from a pool of nominees put forward by MUSE Award Juries. It is awarded only if a single program rises to met the criteria set forth by the award’s intent.” Click to learn more about the project.
