I was here on the first day the Calatrava addition was open to the public, and I brought my children who were young at the time. Santiago Calatrava spoke, and he said the Museum was for everyone. And I think that that is the most important thing, that the Museum attracts people from everywhere, from every neighborhood. And I also think that the Museum does a tremendous job at bringing in children or people that, for the most part, don’t have access on a regular basis to the Museum. So I think that the Museum, for me, is a place of community.

The Museum is my place for renewal.

The Museum to me is an oasis. It’s a landmark of the city, but it’s also the place where I have always found solace, whether it’s from weather, from situations, from the pandemic.
