From the Director

June 1, 2021 | Rand Suffolk

Halfway into 2021, I hope you’re having a much better year than the last. Your support for the Museum through these challenging times has kept our doors open and ensured that we remain stable and relevant. I want to thank you sincerely for your membership, which is the lifeblood of this institution.

I hope that you’ve had the chance to visit us recently, but if you’re venturing out for the first time, you’ll be delighted by what we have to offer this season.

In June, we’ll open Calder-Picasso, which features extraordinary works by two of the most influential artists of the twentieth century. Later this summer, Electrifying Design: A Century of Lighting will illuminate artistic and technological innovations in lighting design over the past one hundred years. Then, we’re thrilled to debut our latest Piazza installation, designed by Bryony Roberts. Also coming up are two Folk and Self-Taught Art exhibitions, Gatecrashers: The Rise of the Self-Taught Artist in America and Really Free: The Radical Art of Nellie Mae Rowe.

As our programming ramps back up to pre-pandemic levels, we’re launching new Lifelong Learning programs, including adult art classes.

I look forward to seeing you at the Museum soon and often.
