Welcome to the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures!
This week on Pop Life, we kick off a three-part series taking a look at the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures. And we get it started with Director and President, Jacqueline Stewart. In addition to her work at the museum, Jacqueline is also a Professor in the Department of Cinema and Media Studies at The University of Chicago.
Host Kendall Phillips and Jacqueline discuss the unique work of the museum, specific displays that the museum houses that still gives Jacqueline chills, and the importance of preservation in the academy deciding to open a museum.
