January 4, 2011—As a new year begins, we invite our Friends to reflect on a successful 2010 for the Mead, marked by 200 Study Room visits, 52 gallery talks, 42 volunteer student Docents, 25 performances, 15 seminars, 14 receptions, 3 new part-time colleagues, a faculty book signing, the publication of the museum's first Kindle e-book, and a transformative re-installation of the entire museum.

2011 promises to be equally busy and rewarding for the Mead. We hope to welcome you back often in the months ahead!
