For me, the Nasher’s soul lies in its people—gifted professionals and great friends. What differentiates it is delivering such excellence at a human scale. Excellence is a trademark of my beloved New York museums, but the Nasher’s contrasting humanity and accessibility is what puts it at the center of my North Carolina life.
