San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee Visits MoAD
On March 6th, 2015 Mayor Ed Lee paid a special visit to the museum. The Mayor received a warm welcome from our Executive Director, Linda Harrison and the rest of the MoAD staff. As a surprise for the mayor, and as part of our ongoing effort to engage visitors, a group of students from our MoAD in the Classroom program performed two songs in a cappella.
Mayor Lee was thoroughly impressed with MoAD’s renovation, interactive kiosks, and programming. He was also excited about inviting other Mayors to our space when San Francisco hosts the 83rd Annual Conference of Mayors in June, The rest of the tour focused on the newly remodeled exhibition spaces that currently host the works of Marie Johnson Calloway, Lava Thomas, and Elizabeth Catlett.
