Emma Thorne-Christy is an exhibition designer and community organizer based in Los Angeles, California. She works with museums, libraries, and cultural centers to design imaginative learning environments that challenge and inspire visitors. While working towards her M.F.A. in Museum Exhibition Design, her research focused on the intersection of museum exhibitions and community organizing. She is one of the brains behind Free the Museum Project, an initiative to activate the “museum experience” in the world around us. Her article for Museum Next in May of 2020, "In Defense of the Physical Exhibition: A plea not to 'move' exhibitions online," went viral in the wake of the closing of museums throughout the world in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
