In addition to displaying, preserving, and expanding its collection, the MV seeks to program activities on its own and in collaboration with other institutions. Programming is an important way for the MV to move beyond the virtual realm. Site specific activities are a way for the MV to forge a network of institutions and individuals who are interested in this subject.
