Ask us anything (about MOCA)

April 25, 2016 // by Jonathan Duck

I remember the first time I had a question about museum work. I was a tender young college student taking my first class or two of a gallery practices course.

This question was incredibly dumb. It made me look bad and feel bad about myself, therefore I will not be sharing it here. (I have to keep my image up, you know.) You might believe there is no such thing as a dumb question. I firmly disagree. Sometimes, though, these questions, can elicit some fascinating answers.

Since my early college days, I have continued to ask those questions, and they have taken me down the “rabbit hole” of museum industry knowledge. I have learned a lot and gotten better at asking questions along the way. I can't say I know everything, but I am always interested in finding out what I don't know.
