Fleming Reimagined: An Ongoing Practice

Fleming Reimagined is a values-based framework we use to cultivate an inclusive environment and interrogate traditional museum practices. By building trust, maintaining transparency, and becoming a responsive space, Fleming Reimagined is our guide for creating a museum in which everyone feels welcome and sees themselves reflected.

At the Fleming, we aim to use art in all forms to expand our understanding of our shared human experience. Everything we do—from selecting art and artists for acquisition and display, to public programming and campus engagement, to community building—requires our attention to work and a commitment to continually assess and communicate it along the way. We look forward to sharing more about the evolution of Fleming Reimagined with you soon.
