  • It’s not about the location, as much as it’s about the people. The energy of professionals having a purpose and tasks to accomplish makes a fundraiser a success. As always a sprint plan, schedules as well as teams being told what is expected differentiates an agile team from a not agile - youth volunteer team. Successful fundraiser. The location is art friendly. There is a prayer room for Jews, and other religions. The place accommodates people from various backgrounds.
  • Amazing! I can not praise this museum enough! The collections were gorgeous and the visiting shows fascinating! I know I am late to review but Yoko Ono's Riverbed was the best show I saw in 2018! I implore everyone to visit! The gift shop was also fantastic!
