We received this kind thank you note after one of our K-12 tours. The “bling bling” work of art Damian mentions is Thomas Hirschhorn’s Necklace CNN (pictured) which was on view in the first half of 2013 as part of our Recent Acquisitions installation. Necklace CNN is being considered alongside many of the works from the museum’s permanent collection for our upcoming exhibition Sound/Vision: Contemporary Art from the Collection.
