The time at the museum, to me, should be unharried and
with no pressure to cover ALOT of ground. The
visitor, hopefully, will feel good about themselves
when they leave and want to return because it was an
enjoyable and fun experience. My job is to allow
others to see that the art museum can be a friendly
and pleasantly stimulating place at any age.
It breaks my heart when I meet a high school group who
look at me blankly when I ask something as simple as
"what do you see?" AND the response from them is too
often, "WHAT do you want us to see?" OR "I don't know
if this is what you want me to see, BUT. . " (at
least, that's progress!) They're so use to trick
questions and having their own observations and ideas
"We are each of us angels with one wing. And we can only fly by embracing each other."
