    Here at OMCA, we are big fans of Articulate with Jim Cotter, a weekly public television show from WHYY, Philadelphia’s PBS and NPR member-station, that explores how creative thinkers help shape our understanding of the world to share selections from the series. Articulate presents a mix of topic features and profiles of some of today’s leading artists, including great thinkers based in California.

Memories of her are intertwined with all of the exhibitions she led throughout her tenure here, like The 1968 Exhibit in 2012 and Above & Below: Stories of our Changing Bay in 2013.
