Wanna Talk Transparency?

So much is said over and over about how non-profits need to be enterprising, unafraid to fail, embracing of their communities and transparent. And every time I see a new blog post from the Brooklyn Museum, I think, "Well, these guys are really *doing* it!" right now they are blogging in detail about the lessons learned from their experience with Wikipedia Loves Art, which was not an unmitigated success. But their honesty--their transparency--in discussing what worked and what didn't and how it could have been improved can be seen as a valuable resource to us all.

I'd love to hear about more museums that are taking that risk--trying out new programs and strategies and then reporting back on their efforts to the whole world. So tell me, what is your museum up to these days?
