Today I am in Doha, Qatar, with museum leaders from around the world for the gala opening tonight of a new Arab Museum of Modern Art.
Qatar Museum Authority has done fabulous cultural work in recent years, and Roger Mandle, a good friend and former president of Rhode Island School of Design, is leading the Authority in its amazing development.
and the Qatar museum are working on plans for a collaborative program in photograph conservation. Everything is fine, except there is a sandstorm in Doha today!
The Arab Museum of Modern Art will celebrate its public opening on December 30th.
