I attended a reception and exhibit of the work of Elizabeth Catlett that was hosted through a partnership between the museum and Delta Sigma Theta Sorority. What a wonderful event, and I don't just say that because I am a member of the organization. Lise Swensson, the director of the museum, has such an engaging enthusiasm for the arts that... More
