When a patron visits our galleries we try to give them many opportunities to share their thoughts with us during and after the visit. One of the ways we do this is by giving visitors a chance to write their own blog entry. Below is an entry we received about Being Here is Better than Wishing We’d Stayed, an exhibition by The Miss Rockaway Armada. Feel free to leave a comment about your own experiences and thoughts about the exhibition at the bottom of this post.

The Rockaway Armada truly sings and shines. What a great space to enage kids, parents, free-form creativity. Finally, a wall in a museum one can scribble on!! For the frustrated artist, tired parent, or jaded museum goer, a visit to Rockaway will refresh and reinvigorate.
But, why oh why, don’t the typewriters work well? I had a poem all set to go, but no ribbon. But myabe that was the point. As Thoreau said, “Much is published, but little is printed” – meaning so little of true worth, true poetry comes to the page.
