As the conservator of objects and variable art, I’m often presented with new and interesting challenges. The current exhibition in the McCormack Forefront galleries is no exception: I mean, after all, how many conservators get to help take care of over 1,000 feet of roller coaster track? Fortunately there’s a team of us that works together to make sure Distance is working—and that means checking in on it every day (including the weekends) to make sure all the balls are rolling.
I took two of my children with me the other weekend when I came in to check on the installation. Because they often critique exhibitions at the IMA and other museums we visit, I thought I would include a picture that pretty much captures what they thought. So take it from Nolan and Maeve, this is an all ages show.
