The Value of Curation Expressed in a Beautiful Poem: The Curator

March 12, 2014 Robin Good

"We thought it would come, we thought the Germans would come, were almost certain they would. I was thirty-two, / the youngest assistant curator in the country. I had some good ideas in those days."


Robin Good's insight:



The Curator, by Miller Williams, is a poem that illustrates the keen value of the curator. 

It's a short story, that can be read in just 3 minutes, and which can provide a great metaphor to explain to others, emotionally, what the value of the curator, is all about. 



Beautiful. Inspiring. 9/10
