Rolling Out the Welcome, Matt

Posted on August 21, 2019

Two months ago, via this blog, I explained the numerous reasons the Woodson Art Museum was refurbishing its main parking lot. Two months later, I can safely say that all of those problems have been corrected.

Ode to the Samuels Group

Capable as we are, the Woodson Art Museum staff does have some limitations. While all are talented in different ways, only a few of us typically get our hands dirty or can lift something with significant weight.

Temporary Walls; Worth the Wait

Posted on March 27, 2013

We at the Woodson Art Museum don’t like barriers. Let me clarify. Our director, Kathy Foley doesn’t like barriers. Me, I love a good barrier. I’m enthralled by partitions, have a slight crush on hedgerows, and I adore a good blockade. It’s a good thing that I don’t call the… Read More

Done . . . Mostly!

Posted on September 05, 2012

By Kathy Kelsey Foley, Director Who said that completing a 9,000-square-foot building addition couldn’t be done in less than a year? Not quite like building Rome, but a feat of considerable magnitude, to be sure. Serendipity is one of my favorite themes; I love when the best of all possibilities… Read More
