As soon as we began discussing actual artists and specific works as a staff, we quickly started to understand just how many different people and departments within the Museum this exhibition process would touch. We were talking about types of installation projects we had never before attempted. I have fond memories of our first discussions with staff about the installation of Jimmy Kuehnle’s AIS  on the pond, Dan Steinhilber’s Reflecting Room covered in metallic Mylar film, and Jonathan Schipper’s Slow Room which slowly pulls all of its contents to destruction. These ideas weren’t met by looks of terror exactly… more like looks of determination. I’ve never felt luckier to work with people who are so innovative and patient. For every bump that we encountered in the road, our staff always came running with a solution. They were in.
