The term Useum™ was trademarked by the Burchfield Penney Art Center in 1996 to suggest the playful atmosphere and hands-on experience that would be available in an interactive, educational exhibition space. In addition to presenting collections in imaginative environments, the Burchfield Penney commissions artists to create interactive displays to promote child and adult learning.
