Q&A with Cindi Morrison, Director

What is the one feature of your business that you're most proud of?

Our permanent collection and temporary exhibits present a wide variety of types of art, including paintings, sculptures, furniture, decorative art, and antiquities. There is something for everyone.

What is the experience customers can expect, and how do you make it special?

Visitors can learn something about different cultures and different eras, from pre-Columbian artifacts to contemporary art. Our temporary exhibits change frequently and there is always something new to see.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

We offer a scavenger hunt for children that encourages them to look more closely at the art and find the answers to the questions. After completing their scavenger hunt the children are rewarded with a prize to remember their visit to the Appleton.
