Letter from the CEO

December 2, 2016

Dear friends of MoPOP,

Thank you for your support as the Museum of Pop Culture launched its new brand with a day of celebratory programming attended by nearly 10,000 people!  As I look back at the decade I have spent with this organization, I can truly say that I am inspired by the power of MoPOP to serve as an inclusive and profoundly interesting place for us to explore the many "culture quakes" that continuously ripple through human society—providing a way for each of us to be different. Together.

I am leaving the organization at the end of this year with grateful thanks to have been a part of it. With the support of all of you, MoPOP is thriving, relevant, and incredibly engaging. Annual visitation is now upwards of 700,000 and the curatorial and programmatic portfolio is internationally renowned—in the past four years, attendance has grown by 55% and MoPOP's exhibits have been experienced from Sea-Tac Airport to Sao Paolo, Brazil. In the community, MoPOP is a leading provider of youth development programming both in the schools and on its Sky Church stage, serving more than 35,000 young people annually.

I look forward to joining you as a fan and supporter of MoPOP for many years to come!

With gratitude,
