A ‘Thank You’ to Our Artists

Dear Artists,

Art is a form of communication, and as our current global situation has forced us to find new ways of connecting, art is more important than ever! At the heart of it all, are the artists. We look to you for inspiration, for creating dialogue, and for helping us to see from different perspectives. No one wants to imagine a world without art and so it is more important than ever to show support for the makers of the content that make the world.

Our heartfelt gratitude goes to the artists! As a museum that engages with contemporary art we are fortunate to work directly with artists from across the world and from right here in our own community. Therefore, sending an enormous thank you to those we have worked with in the past, those we are currently working with, and the ones we hope to work with in the future. It is your vision and voice that keeps us hopeful for a brighter future.

Director and Chief Curator
