“Where We Meet”
In 2016, fiber artist Janet Echelman unveiled a dramatic 200 foot sculpture rippling in the breeze above the new LeBauer City Park in downtown Greensboro. The inspiration for the design of her piece “Where We Met” was the multiple railway lines converging on Greensboro and its numerous textile mills. In the same way, many threads of our communities connect at our museums. We welcome new audiences, promote new perspectives, and collect local culture. Our museums strive to be gathering places. We anchor economic development, present community stories, and provide learning experiences for everyone. By connecting with our communities, large and small, museums can survive and even thrive under today’s challenging economic and cultural conditions.
