(April 30, 2012) -- Between April 29 and May 5, in honor of the AAM Annual Conference,  IPM News will be presenting three videos each day showcasing the recent work of American museums.

TODAY'S VIDEOS:



LIVING WITH WILDFIRE: SHARE YOUR STORIES
BRADBURY SCIENCE MUSEUM, LOS ALAMOS, NM:
Exhibit Installation in progress at the Bradbury Science Museum. Opening at the Museum in June, the exhibit will have a recording booth where you'll be able to tell your personal wildfire story, and a way to listen to stories told by others both at the Museum and on the Museum's website.



THE RECORD: CONTEMPORARY ART AND VINYL
MIAMI ART MUSEUM, MIAMI, FL:
Record covers have the capacity to trigger memories and convey emotion in the most personal way. They are significant not only as tangible connections to music, but for some, as a first encounter with visual art. For this special, interactive project accompanying "The Record: Contemporary Art and Vinyl," a number of prominent international artists were asked to choose records based on cover visuals. Visitors are invited to listen to these records and to forge their own associations with the selected material. DJ Le Spam discusses his "Cover to Cover" selections.



RESTORATION OF PT-305
THE NATIONAL WWII MUSEUM, NEW ORLEANS, LA:
See the PT-305 all-volunteer boat restoration at the Kushner Restoration Pavilion at The National WWII Museum in New Orleans. One hundred ninety-nine Patrol Torpedo boats were built by the Higgins plant in New Orleans during World War II. Only five of those boats remain in the U.S. today and only one is operational.
