I find the exhibitions to be unique and unexpected—I'm always left intrigued and curious.
One of my first dates with my husband was the “Younger than Jesus” opening in 2009 and I thought it appropriate to have our wedding at the Museum. We’ve been Members since our wedding in October 2012.
When the Museum opened the new building in 2007, it was open twenty-four hours and I had a ticket to come at 1 a.m. I’ve been a visitor since then—it’s great to be a part of it since the beginning.
I love that it is a space dedicated to contemporary art as well important but under-recognized artists. I find the exhibitions to be unique and unexpected—I’m always left intrigued and curious.
My favorite, most memorable exhibition was Carsten Höller’s show. I loved interacting with the works as well as seeing how much fun other people were having.
I look forward to the curator-led tours of the exhibitions and the artist studio visits. I feel as if I’m being exposed to information that I would have otherwise never known. Hearing the various artists speak about their work gives me a greater understanding and appreciation for the work that they do.
