I want to support this museum at my alma mater, but I and my friends continue to be disappointed in the lighting of the exhibits. Main gallery exhibits of paintings are poorly lighted on a routine basis, but the over-hyped exhibit of drawings by Michelangelo was ludicrous. The lending institutions insisted that only 5 footcandles of light be used for these small and fragile drawings, making them impossible to enjoy. We couldn't see them in the cave-like environment. It was a mistake on the director's part to borrow these drawings, given their fragile nature. Decisions like this erode the goodwill of supporters.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Improve it's lighting equipment for a lot less than that.
