Reflections from a Gund Gallery Associate

"My lasting memory, though, and the most useful these days, is of the three questions we associates were taught to ask patrons as they stood, befuddled, before a work of art. “What’s going on here? What do you see that makes you say that? What more can we find?” I’ve found you can stand in front of anything in your life, ask those questions and be surprised by the answers. They are a reminder to notice the world, to turn what you notice into a story, and to let that story unfold, forever and ever, amen.
