Louisiana Art and Science Museum, Inc.
March 3, 2010

I've been a visitor/member for more than 15 years. I'm enjoying my 3rd term as a board member. I have enjoyed the wide variety of art exhibits over the years. I love the way the museum brings science education to the community and to the schools. I know from experience with several non-profits that LASM's fiscal management is excellent.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

many art exhibits (from renaissance painters to photography to sculpture to modern art) and science exhibits geared toward my kids. I've also enjoyed the movies and astronomy in the planetarium.

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Two things. First, my exposure to a wide variety of art that I would never have seen or understood otherwise. Second, the forward thinking of the director and staff. They are always looking for new ideas.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Friendly, expert, engaged, energetic, and motivated. Most of the people I have met treat LASM as a mission, not a job.

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

Expand the program exponentially. The staff has great ideas about how to integrate science and art into a modern, relevant education curriculum. More funding would help them expand the museum's reach and accomplish those goals.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every month
