From the Front Desk

Your Take on the Art

“It’s refreshing!”

“The message that it has for the country has great significance.”

“This is a good place to ponder.”

All our visitors have different reactions to our art, and from the front desk we get to see the ways you connect with each piece. Since our experiences color the way we perceive art, we want to share some of your stories.

This week I met Kevin Aguilar, a student at LDS Business College who just moved here from Veracruz, Mexico. He shared his thoughts on In Motion: Borders and Migrations.

“I’ve never been in a museum like this, especially with the Mexican theme. It explains so well the way of life for so many people in Mexico. It’s hard for a lot of people who cross the border. I have some friends that have some of the same situations. One lives in Murray. We call him Jimmy. He was kidnapped in Mexico for three months and had to suffer a lot of things, then had to pay a lot of money to be free. He came to the U.S. and works in construction now.”

In Motion: Borders and Migrations will be on view until September 27.
