What is your vision of the future of the Visual arts for San Diego?

"I work at The New Children's Museum because I believe that we are working to change the future of visual arts in San Diego and across the country. At NCM we believe that contemporary art can have an impact on every person, every family, and every child's life. We are working to present art in an approachable environment that we hope we break down many of the perceived barriers that keep people from making art a part of their everyday life."
