The exhibit opened last night and we hosted 253 guests at the Mathers. Sancocho did a beautiful job drumming, filling the space with an energy so charged of life that people were getting chills. Many people took time to read through the labels in the exhibit, which was difficult because of the crowds. I really appreciated the comments I received from those that braved the crowds, thank you. There were people from town, people from campus, family friends, family, friends, my teachers and colleagues, almost the entire museum staff (!), so many different people came together, enjoyed the night together, in the exhibit. It was beautiful.

Actually, I was just informed that one person wandered in after I left the opening, which brings us to 254.
