Highlands University students to help museums go virtual

New Mexico

LAS VEGAS, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico Highlands University students are working with state officials to bring online visitors to museums later this spring.

The university announced this week students in the school’s Media Arts and Technology Department are offering a free month of emergency cultural services to help create virtual tours, podcasts, websites and online collections.

Cultural Technology Internship program director Lauren Addario says the New Mexico Museum of Art, the Museum of International Folk Art, and the National Hispanic Cultural Center are among the cultural institutions that have shown interest in working with Highlands media arts and technology students.
