Well, on September 1st you can find lots of museum and gallery curators furiously tweeting away on Twitter.   For the “Ask A Curator” event, experts from 26 countries and all types of museums will respond to questions submitted by the public via the social media site.  So yes, you can literally ask a curator about that certain museum issue that you’ve been contemplating.

While not all of the major museums are signed up for this event, many key institutions, such as Whitney Museum of American Art,  Lower East Side Tenement Museum, Walker Art Center, Museo Thyssen Bornemisza, The British Museum,  and many more, are tweet ready.

To actively participate in or just observe the dialogue, you’ll need to be a member of Twitter.  For the specifics, see http://www.askacurator.com.
