Think of a museum. Any museum. Which works of art get to be displayed, and which don't, and why? Where do they keep all the unshown (or unshowable) pieces? And why do they keep them at all? And just how does one pack/ship/transport a priceless painting or sculpture?

"Museum Confidential" is a new and unprecedented exhibition from Philbrook Museum of Art exploring such questions. "Museum Confidential: The Podcast" is a collaboration (to be posted twice monthly) between Jeff Martin of Philbrook and Scott Gregory of Public Radio Tulsa -- and it covers the same fertile ground as the exhibit itself...as in, what really goes on "behind the scenes" at a museum?

Six stars!

I’m so glad I discovered this podcast. Exceptionally produced. Not too long or overly in-depth, but I learn so much every time. Each episode is intriguing. If you work in or generally love museums and cultural institutions, listen to them all!

Loving on Tulsa

OK this podcast is great and inspirational. I am reading Ninth Street Woman and planning a trip to Vienna to see an art exhibit. Thank you for providing avenues to learning. I highly recommend this podcast and so excited that it has originated in Tulsa. Koodos to Jeff Martin and the Philbrook Museum.

New to art appreciation

I'm new to art appreciation and am trying to expose myself to a wide range of art. I love this podcast sincke it really gives a deeper appreciation of what goes on behind the scenes at museums and sparks my interest in a wide variety of topics, artists and museum stories.
